Seniors

The ACCC provides information and services that may be of particular interest to older consumers.

We've compiled a collection of resources on product safety, identifying and avoiding scams, getting the best deals on energy and health insurance, and tips on how to deal with door-to-door selling.

The resources are from the ACCC's websites and other government departments and organisations.
