Free Travel

If you live permanently in the State you will qualify for a Free Travel Pass.

The All-Ireland Free Travel Scheme will entitle you to travel for free on transport services operating within Northern Ireland, using a Senior Smartpass card.

Household Benefits Package

You may, subject to certain conditions, also qualify for:

  • Electricity or Gas Allowance, and
  • Free Television Licence.

Carer's Allowance and Carer's Benefit

A person may get Carer's Allowance or Carer's Benefit to look after you if you need full-time care and attention.

Since September 2007 it may be possible to get a half rate Carer's Allowance in addition to getting a State pension non-contributory in your own right or if someone else is getting an increase for a qualified adult for you.
