TOPIC: ESA and pensions

ESA and pensions 9 months 2 weeks ago #205833

I receive income based ESA Support group. Currently I also have 2 small widows pensions totalling £195.79 monthly which DWP take from the benefit. My own company pension commences in March and I'm trying to decide how much to take as cash lump sum from my small pension. Does anyone know how much monthly pension you can receive and still get ESA ?
Kind regards, Alison

Your pension will be deducted £ for £ from your ESA so take your fortnightly payment amount, divide by 14 and multiply by 30 to get a monthly amount, as long as your pension is less then you will continue to receive ESA.
