Maximum OBR bridging benefit amounts

The amount you will receive depends on your income in the period for which you receive the bridging benefit. If you have another pension or benefit, this income will be deducted fully from the bridging benefit. Income from work will be deducted partly from the benefit. The bridging benefit will never be higher than your most recent VUT early retirement benefit or comparable benefit.

The maximum amounts are shown below. You can also calculate how much you will be entitled to.
