    HI,

    Do you mean you are now eligible to receive your work pension? If so then it will totally depend on what benefits exactly you're claiming. Is it a one off payment or will you be receiving weekly or monthly payments? if you're receiving means tested benefits, it will also depend how much the lump sum payment increases your total savings amount to.

    You haven't really given enough of information for anyone to advise you further.
    I would appreciate it if members wouldn't tag me please. I have all notifcations turned off and wouldn't want a member thinking i'm being rude by not replying.
    If i see a question that i know the answer to i will try my best to help.
