5.4 million people aged over 75 are now expected to pay the TV licence on August 1st or be cut off. It costs £157.50 per year. You will receive a bill through the post. Ignore other communications – BEWARE SCAMS!
The concessionary TV licence is still available to those on Pension Credit. If you are finding it difficult to make ends meet, apply for pension credit now!
According to the Government, more than three million households are eligible for pension credit, but four out of 10 fail to claim the benefit – in many cases because they don’t realise they’re entitled to it.
