Age Limits

The standard age allowance is available if you, or your spouse, are aged sixty-five or more in the tax year. The over eighties age allowance is available if you, or your spouse, are aged eighty or more in the tax year.

Even if your birthday is on 9 April 2015, the last day of the current tax year, you can claim for the whole year. So if you or your spouse were born before 6 April 1988, you should get the standard age allowance. And if you or your spouse were born before 6 April 1909, you should get the over eighties age allowance.

Women aged sixty to sixty four do not receive the age allowance. They get the standard younger person's allowance which is £9 ,609 (£9 0.

10 a week). A married man is allowed an income of £7,099 (£108.79 a week) before paying tax if both he and his wife are under sixty-five throughout the tax year.
