- PAiL & Age UK London have jointly signed a letter to be disseminated by the GLA to promote the take-up of pension credit by older people.
- One of the benefits of getting pension credit is that if you are over 75, you will be exempt from the new charges being brought in on August 1st.
- While we continue to oppose the imposition by the BBC of the license fee to those over 75, as this is going to be brought in on August 1st, we suggest everyone who is eligible apply for this credit to keep their free TV license.
