TV Licensing – over 75 changes Zoom meetings for community groups and charities

In August 2020, there was a policy change to the TV Licence for those over 75 and free licences were no longer funded by the government from this date. However, anyone aged 75 or over and receiving Pension Credit is now eligible to apply for a free TV Licence.

Since then, more than 9 out of 10 of these households have made arrangements for a free or paid licence, or provided an update on changes in their circumstances. TV Licensing is grateful for the high level of support that over 75s customers have shown for the licence fee.

In early July, TV Licensing is writing to customers they are yet to hear from to explain that the extended transition period that was put in place due to Covid will end on 31 July 2021. The letter will include information about the simple steps to take to get set up and make clear that advice and support are on-hand should people need it.

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:

Please note: This meeting is available for staff and volunteers of the community groups so they can relay information to their service users. Sessions can be arranged for any date and time that suits you, so please get in touch if you are interested. To book: email or call 02920 764 100.
