Hi have a look on the Govt.UK site as there is loads of info on there. I was on a free bus pass for a few years for depression and also get low rate DLA (will have to change to PIP very soon and am dreading it). Then last year the Govt. changed the rules so you have to be on high rate DLA (not sure about PIP) to get it. I don't get one now.

If you live in the home countries you get a free bus pass for your area only at 60. In England you have to wait until state pension age to get one except London where you get free bus and tube travel there at 60.

The best thing to do is get the free bus pass number (on the Govt.UK site I think) and give them a call. In my area it is dealt with by my local council so give try them first.

I hope this helps.
