    industrial injury disablement benefit - state pension

    I have received industrial injury disablement benefit for many years. Next year I reach retirement age. Will my IIDB continue when I receive my state pension?

    Effects of Industrial Injuries Disablement Benefit on other benefits

    Your basic Industrial Injuries Disablement Benefit does not affect any other National Insurance benefits such as:
    Incapacity Benefit
    Employment and Support Allowance (contribution-based)
    Contribution-based Jobseeker’s Allowance
    Retirement Pension.

    But Industrial Injuries Disablement Benefit may affect income-related benefits that you or your partner receive such as:
    Income Support
    Employment and Support Allowance (income-related)
    Income-based Jobseeker’s Allowance
    Pension Credit
    Housing Benefit
    Working Tax Credit
    Child Tax Credit
    Universal Credit.



    Since it does not affect your retirement pension I would say you keep it. It does say for life or at least mine does.
