Free TV Licence if you are in receipt of Pension Credit
From 1st August 2020 if you are over 75 and in receipt of Pension Credit, you do NOT have to pay for your TV Licence. Guarantee Pension Credit tops up your weekly income if it’s below £173.75 (for single people) or £265.20 (for couples) – this amount does not include Disability Living Allowance or Attendance Allowance. If you would like to check if you are eligible to receive Pension Credit, please phone the PHP Your Money Team on 0800 652 3900 who will be happy to help you.
Independent living with support!
PHP provides support to residents via sheltered housing schemes, so they may lead healthy fulfilling lives and continue to make a positive contribution to society.
The unfurnished flats and bungalows provide independent living in a safe, secure, communal environment.
Our sheltered housing staff ensure our residents receive a high standard and appropriate service by treating them with value and dignity. Every effort is made to include residents at all levels of decision making.
