Dear Department for Work and Pensions,

I have an enquiry that comes up quite often now. If a person takes their private pension/occupational pension in full at age 60 years. When they retire will their state pension be topped up by pension credit if they then have none of the money left and no other income. They have the years required for a full state pension.

Yours faithfully,
Carole Keith

'It might be tempting to think that you could perhaps get the money out of your pension spent or given away so that you were then entitled to benefit, but you would need to be very careful about this.'
