TV Licensing

In August 2020, there was a policy change to the TV Licence for those over 75 and free licences were no longer funded from this date. However, anyone aged 75 + and receiving Pension Credit can apply for a free TV licence. 
TV Licensing is now writing to customers that they have yet to hear from to explain the extended transition period (put in place due to Covid) is due to end at the end of July 2021
If you are yet to make arrangements, you are likely to receive a letter (example here) The letter includes information about how to get a licence and how to get advice and support should you need it.
If you think you’re eligible for a free licence but don’t currently have a TV Licence, you can contact TV Licensing on 0300 790 6117 and speak to one of their advisors to request an application form. (Their lines are open between 8.30am and 6.30pm, from Monday to Friday.)

 

TV Licensing will be hosting zoom meetings for community groups and charities to get up to speed with the latest updates and what this will mean for your clients. In the meeting they will cover:

• TV Licence basics

• Over 75 policy change

• Flexible payment plans

• Concessions

• Vulnerable customers

• Supporting materials available

Please note: This meeting is available for staff and volunteers of the community groups so they can relay information to their service users. They can arrange this for any date and time that suits you so please get in touch if you are interested.
