    Thanks for posting.

    You can get a Veterans Oyster photocard if you:
    • Receive ongoing payments under the War Pensions Scheme in your name. This includes widows, widowers and dependants
    • Receive Guaranteed Income Payment under the Armed Forces Compensation Scheme in your name. This includes widows, widowers and dependants

    Ongoing payments are awarded to service personnel who've sustained a certain level of physical or psychological injury in the line of duty. If you received a one-off gratuity payment instead, you can't get a Veterans Oyster photocard.

    You also can't get a Veterans Oyster photocard if you're eligible for a 60+ London Oyster photocard or Freedom Pass and you live in a London borough.
