Get an answer to your financial question online Reader Question:


If I have £100,000 in an ISA, will this affect my state pension?


My response:

No it won't as the State Pension is not means tested. Your State Pension depends purely on how many qualifying years of National Insurance Contributions (NICs) you have built up.

I hope that helps.
