    So after receiving a Letter from the DWP and two months away from turning 65 years young. I've just come off the phone to put in a claim for my State Pension to start in April this year, all approved and told how much I'll get per week from April 2018.

    Still off work due to long term illness, so able to finally goodbye to ESA (Employment Support Allowance) now and hello to Pension Credit.

    Now I do feel, old [​IMG] so excuse the odd senior moment in my ramblings. [​IMG]

    Always handy to have the concession pass mate gets you discounts in places. My dad is the same 68 years old this year. Didnt want the bus pass untill i told him it gets him discounted fares on the ferry service he uses to visit my gran. So needless to say je now has the pass.

    Apparently this Vectra Sport site never ages, still shows 18 years old, wish I could never age. :)
