Pension and ESA

Hi, first post, I was pointed in this direction from a phone call to scope. Does anybody know how my wife's contribution based ESA could be affected by taking the 25% tax free of her pension? She's also in the support group. The remaining 75% would be reinvested in a pension fund so there wouldn't be any regular earnings but more an added income for that tax year. The money would be used to buy a car and doing some things around the house so wouldn't be added to savings for very long. Hope this all makes sense and TIA for any advice
