Over-75s reminded about free TV licence
11:40am Tuesday 10th December 2013 in News
HAMPSHIRE residents reaching their 75th birthday are being reminded that they have something extra to celebrate – a free TV licence.
Thousands of people in the country are already taking advantage of their landmark but others are forgetting their senior privilege is there for the taking, TV Licensing and Independent Age say.
Anyone aged 75 or over is eligible for a free TV licence for their main address.
The free licence will cover all the equipment in the property, meaning family or carers living in the same home will also benefit, even if they are watching on devices such as laptops, tablets and smartphones.
Anyone aged 74 or over can begin planning for the concession immediately by applying for a short-term licence which will last between one and 11 months.
