    No, the TFLS is not income for tax purposes.

    It may affect benefits.

    If you take more than the TFLS you might trigger the Money Purchase Annual Allowance.

    The tax free lump sum is, erm, tax free. This means it not counted as taxable income at all and will not result in you having to pay extra tax on your other income.

    Obviously if you took more than 25% out then the extra would count as taxable income and might push you into the higher rate tax bracket - which is a good reason to withdraw our offer a number of years or wait until you are earning less from your day job before starting to withdraw it.
