Which benefits are taxable
« on: 24 Jan 2017 05:22PM »
If my sole income is income related ESA support group and PIP and I chose to draw down 5000 from a pension (to get a car) does than mean my income will have gone over the 11,000 personal allowance that's tax free because of either the ESA or PIP? 

Or are those 2 benefits not taxable so the 5000 would be tax free?

Regards

Confuzzled Fiz

Hi Fiz - both income-based ESA and PIP are non-taxable benefits, if that answers your question!

Yes I think it does. So if I draw down up to 5000 from my pension pot it won't affect my benefits and it wouldn't be taxed it seems. If I'm correct.

I see the possibility of regaining a car once I'm 55!
