Will my pension affect tax credits?

sdelve Member Posts: 1 Listener
Can I ask a question please.....I get the disability element of tax credits....I'm about to access a pension which has now matured...I'm 60. Will it affect my tax credits. If I choose drawdown, the first 25% is not taxable so I think that's ok but the rest is 75% taxable.

    Hi sdelve and welcome

    You need to get trained financial advice before you do anything. Failure to do so could cost you a lot of money
