Celebrating our 100 year anniversary
Prescription Prepayment Certificates (PPCs) entitle the holder to obtain prescription medicines (for their own use only) without further charge during the period of validity of either three months or a year.
To qualify for the PPC, you will need to be on
There are three ways to do this:
Unfortunately the TBF are unable to pay for PPCs directly to the NHS due to the applicant needing to purchase it from the NHS.
1. Request a BRONZE FORM from the TBF
We will post or email you a Bronze From: Request for payment for prescription prepayment certificate. Please complete the form in relation to the person applying for the PPC.
2. Get your GP to sign Bronze Form
Take your completed Bronze Form to your doctor to confirm:
3. Send us your Bronze Form
Post or e-mail your completed Bronze Form to:
- Transport Benevolent Fund, Suite 2.7, The Loom, 14 Gowers Walk, London, E1 8PY
Please also forward your original PPC notification email through to firstname.lastname@example.org and please add your membership number to the subject and confirm your address to ensure we send your cheque to the correct place.
As long as we are sure you will benefit from holding a PPC and that you are unlikely to be able to claim free prescriptions, we will pay the fee for the PPC. We will reimburse the amount paid. If your condition is a continuing one, we would prefer that you obtain a 12 month PPC rather than a three month one.
As a charity, we are sorry that we cannot pay any charges levied by doctors for completing our forms.
Please note that TBF cannot help towards PPCs purchased before becoming a member, the valid from date is before you have become a member.
If so, and the timeframe that your GP has stated on your Bronze Form currently covers you (i.e. long term/ongoing), all that we would ask is for you to simply send (email/post) us a copy of your new certificate details.
