Everyone over 75 and currently in receipt of a free TV licence can expect to receive a letter explaining the different payment methods and the letter will also explain how to apply for an exemption if they are in receipt of Pension Credit.
Anyone in receipt of Pension Credit must still apply to that they can receive an exemption certificate.
