    Hi,

    The pension will be counted as income £1 for £1 when calculating any universal credit. 

    Id advise you to contact and advice agency near you for a full benefit check.

    Pensions are a nightmare (in terms of legislation etc)!!

    If you’re below state pension age and aren’t drawing from it, it is ignored.
