Quick question.Does a person on loan parent and not working have to pay for a tv licence ?
Q. Is it possible to obtain a free Television Licence?
A. A free television licence may be obtained under the scheme administered by the Minister for Social and Family Affairs known as Household Benefits Package. If you qualify for the Household Benefits Package then you will be entitled to a Free Television Licence from the next due renewal date of your current Television licence.

Thank you for the info.I will give them a call.
Have a good day
Persons on One Parent Family Payments do not qualify for the Household Benefits Package as described above, so must fund a TV licence themselves.
Isn't that scheme mainly or solely for OAPs?
Is this of any use?

I called up siligo to get the info.Nope have to pay for one.oh well.not a problem .i moved into my new place about 7 weeks ago and a week ago i got a letter in the door about the house not having a tv licence,i honestly didnt even think of getting one as i was setting up electric and gas account and moving boxes in and out and getting the kids school sorted.
well,anyhow it never dawned on me about the tv.so i picked one up yesterday.
Did you know that you can bring your TV licence from one premise to another. The question I have do I get a refund (pro-rata) if I am leaving the country?
Plus you can set up a Direct Debit - €13.33 per month. Makes things a bit easier.
