Re: proof of age card out of date

Hi @Zoeylee


You would need valid identification.


You can only use an Australian/State Government issued Proof of Age/Identity card ONLY when combined with a Medicare card which includes the applicant’s name.


You can find more information about acceptable forms of identification here
