Other benefits and concessions for older blind and partially sighted people
There are a number of concessions that you may be entitled to because of your age or sight loss or both.
- You can get free NHS sight tests if you are aged 60 or over. Find out more about help with NHS costs.
- You can get a free TV Licence if you or someone you live with is 75 or over. And if you are not yet 75, you can still get a 50 per cent reduction in the price of your TV Licence if you or someone you live with is registered blind (severely sight impaired).
- Your partner or someone else who cares for you may be able to get extra benefit for helping you. Find out more about benefits for carers.
