I am retired but not yet 65, can I claim age allowance?

No, The age allowance ceased in April 2016.  However, you may still be eligible for earlier years if you were born before 6 April 1948 2014/15, 6 April 1938 2014/15 & 2015/16 . The entitlement to the allowance was based on age, not personal circumstance, unless your income exceeded 14/15 £27,000 or 15/16 £27,700, when it was reduced by £1 for every £2 of income over the threshold until the allowance was equal to the basic personal allowance 14/15 £10,500, 15/16 £10,660.
