Your IP should be aware that your pension is 4 weekly and have adjusted the monthly payments to suit -- did you discuss this ?

hi foggy
No they haven't they have worked it out on my monthly payment. I don't mind this it is just I have caught up now and will be drawing £700 cash instead of £300 cash for my expenses, as I withdraw all cash apart from my direct debits, The balance will go in the separate envelopes for my car insurance and annual payments plus food, I have not been able to put the same amount allocated to my car insurance each month so the extra will make this rightx

They probably won't notice the extra going out -- but might query the extra payment in at your annual review. The main thing is that your total annual income is what they expect it to be. Be ready to explain if they ask.

Easier to give him the cash. As I say, as long as your total annual income matches that which the IP is expecting to see, it should be OK.
