Important information about over 75 TV Licences

The BBC has decided that, because of coronavirus and the challenges to the UK, changes to over 75 licences won’t now happen until 1 August. This means that your current free licence will remain valid until then.

If you are receiving Pension Credit and you are ready to apply for your free licence now, you can still do this. But there is plenty of time so there is no hurry and please don’t feel you need to apply straightaway if you are worried about leaving your home.

If you have already applied for your new licence and sent us information about your Pension Credit, we are processing your application and we will be in touch with you before the new policy starts.

If you are not receiving Pension Credit, you don’t need to do anything just yet. We will write to you in plenty of time before the policy changes to let you know what you will need to do.
