There is confusion over the cutoff date for men qualifying for auto tax pension credits. Is this October 1953 or 1954. A government Job Centre Plus leaflet (dated 2010) apparently says (page 16) that men born before October 1954 still get one year of credit. This contradicts the current Gov.uk site.

State Pension Age has changed in recent years. The date on Gov.uk site says October 1953 so that's the correct one.
A woman born on 6th October 1954 won't reach her State Pension Age until October 2020 when she is 66 years old. So a man of the same age won't be qualifying for any credits.
