From 1 August the free TV license for people over 75 will only be available for those who claim Pension Credit.
If you – or someone you know – could do with a bit more cash as well as continue getting the free TV license, now is a good time to claim.
People who receive Pension Credit can also get free dental treatment and possibly help with Council Tax and housing cost.
You can apply by phoning 0800 99 1234 (Mon-Fri 9:30 – 6 pm).
You will need to have certain information to hand:
- Your National Insurance number
- Information about your income, savings and investment
- Your bank account details
- You can also apply by post. Call the number above and ask them to send you an application form or you can download a copy from the website www.gov.uk/pension-credit
