Brief Summary

Factsheet about later life for trans people.

Extract from Document

This factsheet provides information about later life for transgender (or trans) people. The main focus is on growing older for those who transitioned at a younger age and live their lives permanently in their affirmed gender. But it also provides information for people in later life who are seeking gender reassignment.

The factsheet covers a range of social, care, legal and financial issues. It has a glossary and details of where to go for further information and support.

The information given in this factsheet is applicable in England and Wales. Different rules may apply in Northern Ireland and Scotland. Readers in these nations should contact their respective national offices for information specific to where they live – see section 18 for details.

If you need further information or advice, see section 18 for details of how to order other Age UK factsheets and information materials. You will also find the telephone numbers for Age UK Advice there.

If you need more detailed advice tailored to your personal circumstances or representation, it is often best to find a local service offering this. Age UK Advice can give you contact details for a local Age UK (or in Wales Age Cymru), or you could contact one of the independent organisations listed in section 17.
