Tax the pension – the latest DWP dastardley trick they want to keep secret!

I paraphrase.

Dear Oldie,

This beneficent Tory government will allow you to do what you like with YOUR pension and we will no longer require you buy an annuity. It is YOUR pension dear very much wanted grey vote person.  You have worked all your life and this is YOUR money.

Regards

Yet what the Tories are NOT telling you – and I mean apart from the fact tens of thousands of fly-by-night money experts will appear out of the ether to swindle it from you – is that the Tory government will tax your benefits on this.

Here is the link to the latest dictat from the DWP

Below is what it says and requires no further comment.

Although for some reason I am minded of Dick Dastardley in Catch the Pigeon and we know you oldies do love a singalong so altogether now …

Nab it! Jab it! Tab it! Grab it!

    1. Agree it is not new. The DWP release is new and is news – news to all those pensioners who have been fed its your pension do as you will with it, yet NOT told of the benefit tax implications in all the political spin and hype

    2. Gareth, as ever you go into minute depth and provide huge detail. Yet the point here is a simple accessible overview to a more general public rather than to a welfare benefit specialist audience.
