Can you claim free TV licence?

MORE than 100 Spalding residents can take advantage of a free TV licence when they turn 75 next year.

At least 110 people in the town are already benefiting from a short-term TV Licence for those aged 74.

However, many more, including those living with someone aged over 75, are eligible for the concession which will cover TV viewing on all equipment at the property.

Applying for a free licence is easy and, once you have done so, TV Licensing will renew your licence automatically on an annual basis for three years, cutting down on excess paperwork.

However, it’s not granted automatically so those who are eligible need to make sure they remember to apply and get in touch with TV Licensing directly.

You can do so online at www.tvlicensing.co.uk/over75 or by calling 0300 790 6073.
