    A 93 year old can get a free passport, TV licence paid, £300 winter fuel allowance, free prescriptions, concessionary bus travel, etc. Many people get attendance allowance by that age. And depending on income, there's pension credit. More info about entitlements etc in the Pensioners Guide here

    I think any 93 year old who needs a new passport should definitely get a free one...Great to think that you can still want to travel at that age.

    I think my dad got a free passport for ID purposes - before that he sometimes found it very difficult to open new bank accounts etc because he doesn't have a driving licence "and the last time I went abroad was when Mr Churchill sent me."

    So, even if you DON'T want to travel, a free passport has its uses! :rotfl:
