Does my dad have to pay for his TV licence?
So, I'm not sure if anyone can help with this one. I'm asking this question for my dad. The BBC look as though they are means testing TV licences for pensioners (whether this will actually happen I don't know). My dad (84) lives alone on attendance allowance but doesn't qualify for pension credit. My mum lives in a care home (chronic dementia) but does qualify for pension credit. As pension credit seems to be the deciding factor, will he have to pay the licence fee?
