    Just found out free charges for your son daughter. 30th Sep 17 at 10:50 AM
    Free dental prescription eye ....
    I've copied some guidance for you below. I hope this is of use:
    The automatic exemption for prescription charges stops once you reach the age of 19.

    The only exception to this is if the parent/ guardian is in receipt of a passporting benefit (such as Income Support ) or Tax Credit Exemption and the dependant has been included in the assessment of the benefit or tax credit entitlement.

    In such a case the child will automatically be entitled to full help with health costs. They can prove they are entitled to help by showing their parent's award notice and a letter from their school or college stating that they are still in full time education.

    The child's entitlement to full help will cease once their parent's Child Benefit stops and will not continue until the end of the parent's award for help with health costs.

    If the parent or guardian is in receipt of Child Benefit for a 19 yr old but is not in receipt of a passporting benefit or Tax Credit Exemption then the child must complete an HC1 form in their own right.

    This information can also be found in booklet HC11 – Pages 15, 16 and 17 located at: http://www.nhsbsa.nhs.uk/HealthCosts/1558.aspx

    Also many people can google and find out things like that for themselves if they are curious. If someone had specifically asked for this info, and you provided it, then maybe a thanks would be in order. But randomly copying info off a website and being upset no one thanked you for googling and copy pasting for them? No.

    These are my own views and you should seek advice from your local Benefits Department or CAB.

    A)Is he colourblind?
    B)Is he a sandwich short of a picnic?
    C) Is he far too clever to be bothered with such trivialities?

    Answers on a postcard please.

    Years ago, we had two springer spaniels who loved their yellow rubber ring, so when it began to disintegrate they were given one exactly the same but blue and refused to play with it. However, they loved the newer red one .


    Dogs can't see red or green as we do ,so my dogs just didn't like blue but yellow and red looked the same. The chart on the page in this link explains.

    This is Gitdog we're talking about here.
    The answer is obviously 100% C.
