Lump Sum

Hi, looking for some advice.
I have a very small pension pot worth less than £2,000 as a lump sum when I turn 55 in  a couple of months and was thinking of simply cashing it in as I already have two decent Occ pots.
My question is, I was made bankrupt in early 2000s, being discharged in 2007, so there is nothing on my credit file. Can the administrator still take any cash I claim even after all this time? I know people lost out with PPI because of a previous bankruptcy or sequestration.
BTW I was made bankrupt in Scotland if that makes any difference.
