I wonder if it is discrimination that some councils give free bus passes to those over 60 and others don't. I was really looking forward to my free travel when I turned 60 last April, even if I can't retire till I am 65 1/2 but found my local council only issue it on actual State pension age.

HMRC give your tax code to the pensions company. They apply the tax code and deduct any tax due, in the same way that an employer does. If you are in receipt of several pensions it can get complicated.

You do not pay NI on pensions so only your earnings need to be taken into consideration.

I always thought that tio qualify for this you had to be at least state pension age, that would be the female state pension age to avoid sexual discrimination. This is, at the moment, a moveable feast and needs to be checked before you apply. There is, however, nothing to stop individual councils from supplying this benefit sooner than the national age threshold but it is hardly discrimination if they do.
Are some passes "free"? I know some are only free after a certain time, being half price until then.

So if eg I start receiving my pension in April ( of any year ) it would not be taxed unless I rec more than £10,000 ( the personal allowance ) in a tax year ??
So you would only be liable for NI if your income from work NOT including pension went above £7956
Here’s how to extend them
They’re normally £10
Have any suggestions for this Forumite?
