Free TV Licence - Free for aged 75 and over

DescriptionIf you are 75 or over, you can get a free TV Licence. You can still get your licence free even if you live with people who are younger than you. You will need to provide your National Insurance Number, or if you don't have this you will need another way to prove your age.

If you are aged 74, you can buy a 'short term licence'. This will cost less that a full licence and it will last until you are 75 when you will get a free licence.

You can apply for the licence online or by telephoning TV Licensing.
