Free TV licences for the over-75s are changing. Will you still get a FREE TV licence from June 2020?
In 2015 the Government passed responsibility for TV licences to the BBC, with no funding from 2020. Lacking the money to fund free licences for all over 75s, the BBC decided that only over-75s on a very low income will be eligible and they will have to prove they receive Pension Credit to qualify.
Currently two in every five older people who are entitled to Pension Credit do not receive it.😞 Even more reason to check benefit entitlement!
