Does anyone know whether lump sums from a windup pension scheme could be used to make a full and final offer on my Iva? It is not enough to settle full amount, but would cover outstanding payments. Would this be considerèd as a windfall? Should I talk to IP, if they treated it as a windfall , I would need to continue payments and also lose my pension rights
I would appreciate your comments

As IPs do have a tendency to treat these things differently it is best to chat with them to see how the land lies. These days they are also getting into the habit of re-interpreting IVA clauses ! Do have a look through your proposal first, though. Sometimes pensions and proceeds are excluded.
