Check if you can get a Free TV Licence if your 75 or older

In August 2020, the BBC introduced a new scheme that offers some over 75 households a free TV Licence. You can get a free TV Licence if:

 You, as the licence holder, are 75 years or older

AND

you, or your partner living at the same address, receive Pension Credit.

It covers you as well as anyone you live with.

To find out more and to apply for one check out the TV Licencing website…

Blind (severely sight impaired)

If you are blind (severely sight impaired) and can provide them with the appropriate evidence, you will be eligible to apply for a 50% concession.

Your licence will also cover anyone who lives with you.

If you are partially sighted (sight impaired) then you will not be eligible.
