Free TV licence for over 75s: New reform to reduce ‘fuss’ for low income pensioners | Personal Finance | Finance

It is estimated some 7,000 people apply for a free TV licence each month. 

Guy Opperman, minister for pensions, said: “We want everyone to claim the benefits to which they are entitled, including Pension Credit which acts as a gateway for other benefits such as the free TV licence.

“This change will help reduce the administrative burden on over-75s and put their minds at ease.”

Back in 2020, the decision was made to curtail the number of individuals eligible for a free TV licence.

Previously, all those over 75 were able to secure a free licence – however, now, people must be entitled to Pension Credit.
