I’ve just received the letter from DWP asking about the yearly increase to my teacher’s pension.
In previous years I have always given them Teachers’ Pensions (TP) address as at this stage I don’t know what the increase will be. However I’m wondering if my ESA has been wrongly calculated due to the information that DWP has been given by TP.
It appears that TP has given my gross pension rather than my net income. I know ESA is reduced by 50p for every £1 you receive over £85 but does anyone know if that is based on gross or net income?
