In June 2020 I was in hospital been in 8 weeks, they told me I had cancer in stomach and were going to operate, then told me I'd had a heart attack and could not operate sent me home with terminal cancer. I have a private pension and told provider about terminal cancer and asked could I take my pension as a lump sum I'd taken some as a lump sum when I retired in 2012 and have been getting monthly payments. They said no its not there dissision ITS HMRC my pension is worth almost £90000, so I'm not allowed to "cash it in". It makes no difference having terminal cancer, I spoke to macmillans finance team and they said the same. I'm divorced so ex can't benefit HMRC can pay out under £30000. Give me 30000 for my family HRMC be happy with keeping £60000.my MP says she will look into it agrees it's not right but it's going to happen HRMC will take it after my death.
