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.
From 1 August 2020 free over 75 TV Licences, funded by the Government, will come to an end. There will be a new policy which means that anyone who is aged 75 or over and receiving Pension Credit will receive a free licence, paid for by the BBC.
Anyone aged over 75 but not receiving Pension Credit will need to pay for a licence if they need one.
