ESA and pension 'draw down'
I needed to access cash (draw down) from my private pension before Christmas. DWP have just sent me a letter informing me that there are will be no changes to my claim as the amount falls within the required limits. They have said the amount classes as 'savings'. What they didn't say was for how long it's classed as savings. eg for 12 months from receipt of money, 12 months from receipt of letter, or in that financial year? Has anyone any experience of this?
