Applying for Gold Card - changes to age eligibility

If you are turning 60 please be aware that there are changes to when you can apply for a Gold Card.

You no longer receive a Gold Card automatically at the age of 60. Instead, the qualifying age is now linked to the state pension age.

To see when you will qualify for a Gold Card on age grounds. Check the State Pension age on the GOV.UK website (opens in a new window).

These changes have been brought in across the country - not just in Derbyshire.

If you qualify for Gold Card because of disability, regardless of your age you can apply immediately.
