It does seem to be odd thinking about September at the moment, but the current crisis has changed our plans. I am taking my pension at the age of 57 in September, and the money from the sale of our house was going to allow us to pay off our mortgage, relocate to another part of the UK and live mortgage free. Obviously, our house will now not be sold by September so we will have to stay put and continue to pay our mortgage. My lump sum could tide us over for up to a year (though that is not how I envisaged using it). It also looks like I will have to find some sort of employment to keep me going. My question - if I have taken my pension is there any limit to the type of employment I could take, how much I can earn or how often I can work?
