Hi I have been told due to the inability to work I am no eligible to get my pension from work early they have confirmed this it's £2200.00 how will this affect other benefits ?

    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.
