We understand that paying for those extra bills can become a burden for the elderly within our community, that’s why we provide a contribution towards the cost of a television licence for pensioners subject to certain conditions. The contribution is made per licence. Therefore only one contribution per household can be made each year.

You must meet the following 3 criteria:

  1. Be at least 60 years old at the time of purchasing the TV licence.
  2. Have an income of no more than £271.15 per week (from 1 April 2017). In the case of a couple, this is a joint income level. For this purpose income includes, all income received except any disability pensions or allowances which are ignored.
  3. Must reside within Bolsover District and must be a householder (either owner/occupier or tenant) or be living in a separate part of the premises for which a separate licence is required.

The contribution is restricted to £12, irrespective of whether you have a black and white or colour television licence. You will receive a cheque for £12.00 to your home address within 10 working days. Your TV licence will be returned to you at the same time. 

Please apply for your contributuion using our TV Licence application form (40kb).
