TV licence fee for over-75s: 1.3m could be missing out on this exemption



As of 1 August 2020 free TV licences are only available for over-75s who receive Pension Credit. It's estimated 1.3 million eligible households don't claim this benefit. Are you or an older relative missing out?

The BBC says about 1.5 million over-75s will be able to claim for the free licence, however up to 3.7 million people who were eligible for a free licence may now have to pay.

A standard TV licence currently costs £154.50 a year – you need one to watch or record programmes as they're being shown on TV or live on an online TV service, and to download or watch BBC programmes on the BBC iPlayer.

Check if you're eligible for Pension Credit here to avoid the new charge.
