Does your Freedom Pass expire on 31 March 2018?

If your Older Person Freedom Pass expires on 31st March 2018 you will receive a letter after 7th February 2018 with instructions on how to renew your pass for a further 5 years, until 31st March 2023. 


Once you have received your letter you can renew online by following the steps in your letter.

1. Renew online now 

2. Enter your unique renewal number from your letter, which starts with FRER

3. Enter your date of birth and the last four digits of the long number shown on the front of your existing Freedom Pass

4. Check and confirm your details are correct

That's it! You will receive your pass in around three weeks, as long as your application is accepted. 


If your name and/or address has changed you will need to add a scan or photograph of a document which proves your new details. Find out what documents we accept here. Please have this ready and saved on your computer before you start your online renewal application.

If you cannot renew online, you can use the form on the back of your letter (unless you are a resident in the London Borough of Sutton, in which case, please take your letter to your local library).


If you hold a Disabled Persons Freedom Pass which expires on 31 March 2018, your local authority will be reviewing your ongoing entitlement, and if you are eligible your new pass will be posted to you in late February. 

If you are a resident in the London Borough of Camden your new pass will be posted to you in February.
