Yesterday I posted an article from Martin Lewis- the Money Saving Expert. To my delight Martin posted information regarding entitlement to discounted tickets for the 2012 London Olympic Games.

I’m sure you’ll agree that it is great that the prestigious Olympic Games are finally coming to London in 2012. The games will be fabulous for both the city and the country.

With so much excitement ahead of the games many people have already applied for tickets through the official application ballot system, which allows everyone to select up to 20 events that they would like to attend. From there you simply have to wait to find out whether or not your application has been successful.

Tickets are thought to be in high demand and prices differ from event to event. However, the Olympics Games have enlisted discounts to children and over 60’s.
If you are over 60 and lucky enough to get tickets for the games, you will be charged a standard rate of £16 for a standard ticket on 220 sessions at the Olympics 2012.

The discount is great as combined with the additional discount scheme for children, celebrating the London 2012 becomes affordable for families across the country- Perfect chance to take the Grandchildren out for the day!

To be in with a change of attending London 2012 Olympic Games you must register at the official Olympics registration site before the 26th April 2011. Good luck!

Impressively Martin has covered the shake up on state pension, which has seen countless column inches in the newspapers. He successful makes often uncertain subject areas, such as state Pension and benefit entitlement much simpler to understand. Additionally offering links to where further information that’s specific to you is available.

I was really caught by how much elderly people here in the UK can become entitled to, which I am sure lots of people might be unaware of. There is everything from free television licences to free passports and bus passes.
