Other income gives you the opportunity to add details of any other income sources that you would like the system to take into consideration when determining how to meet the income profile along with calculating the tax liability for the scenario. For phased drawdown, there is a requirement that one additional other income is included along with state pension before progressing.
State pension is included as part of other income. To take it out of the calculations, untick the selection box. The state pension age is auto-calculated from the age and gender of the client using Office of National Statistics data; this can be changed if desired. The yearly income amount can be amended to your client’s specific circumstances.
If your client has earned additional state pension then this figure can also be taken into consideration when calculating the income analysis. This number must be manually input.
