TOPIC: final lump sum payment from pension

final lump sum payment from pension 2 months 2 weeks ago #225794

I am on contribution based ESA, and in the support group....
I received a final lump sum payment of a pension I had years ago of £12,234..
I have received a letter from the Department for Works & Pensions stating they need to see full statements from the date the payment was put into my account, Also if I have made large withdrawals over £500 transfers or purchases since the payment was received, please provide receipts and explanations...

Will my ESA be affected by the final lump sum I received ?

If you are only receiving Contribution Based ESA then the pension should not have any affect on your ESA and should be treated as a one-off capital payment. In fact, you should ask the DWP why they need the information that they have asked for as it would only be relevant to an Income Related ESA claim.
