65 ?  retirement age is not 65 in the Uk for people  born after around 1955 s . It's  66 + now and will probably rise.

Confusing ..I am over 60 and get free prescriptions although not my bus pass in the Uk. I don't get my state pension until I am 66. Got my resendency last year in Italy and a poo test came a couple of months later in the post. Funny tale my cleaner had opened my mail looking for bills to pay, left the mail in a heap mixed up  ..arrived with friends, few drinks and well tried to read several letters and a plastic poo test, in the mixed up mail was a metal sticker ...bar code Also in the mail was a letter about the new bin collection and some English friends had said you need proof of identity  at the new tip as it's not easy ..thought the metal strip was for the tip identification ..Agh it was to be stuck on the poo test . Laughed so much the next day with friends when I translated the letters and I realised! Happy Easter x
