Your personal finance questions – I have cancer so is there any way I can get early access to my pension?
Q I am 46 years old and single. Unfortunately, I have stage four cancer. While I am on sick leave my income has come down by 50pc. Since it is more than likely that I won’t see pensionable age, which is 20 years away, can I cash in my pension so that I have the money now instead? I have no dependants but what I do have are bills to pay for now and maybe a bucket list.
