I'm over 75 and pay for my TV Licence. Can I cancel and get a refund?

After your 75th birthday, your licence will not automatically change to a free over 75 licence. You will need to apply so that we can check if you’re eligible. Find out how to apply for a free over 75 licence.

If you pay by Direct Debit, please don’t cancel it. We will cancel your Direct Debit for you when we process your application.

Can I get a refund?

When we process your free over 75 licence application we will also refund any money overpaid (we will let you know if you need to provide any additional information). We will backdate your refund to the first month of your 75th birthday, or if you started paying after your 75th birthday, we will backdate your refund to that date.
