TOPIC: cash lup sum from pesion pot

cash lup sum from pesion pot 3 months 1 week ago #223999

Hello, desperate for advice or where to look for info please. I get ESA contribution based only and am in the support group . I am planning on taking a lump sum as a one off payment from my pension pot. Will it be treated as a weekly payment and therefor reduce my ESA, (EXCESS OVER £85) or will it be disregarded ? thank you

Welcome to the forum, you might want to have a look at the following FAQ which explains where everything is

Welcome to Benefits and Work

In case you are not aware, your real name appears to be showing in the forum, if you want to change this then follow the instructions in the following FAQ

My full name is showing, how can I stop it?

A one-off payment should not be treated as income for ESA(CB) and will not affect it.

Thank you so much. I received this and didn't tell the DWP as I didn't think it affected it but now I am being called in for a compliance interview and i can't think of any other reason for why they would want to see me., cheers
