Thank you for your question
My name is Clare
I shall do my best to help you but I need some further information first
When was an assessment first made by the CMS (which year)
In that case the way forward will be that once you are unemployed the assessment will drop to reflect your actual earnings - including from your investments.
The only monies at risk will be the six months pay in lieu of notice.
I hope that this is of assistance - please ask if you need further details
PILON is exactly what is says - the equivalent of what you would have been paid for six months - and of course if you had been paid in the usual way then you would have paid your maintenance from it - which is why it would be at risk.
There is no way around this and you may remain liable for the normal assessment for the first six months
With regard to the investments the CMS will look at the actual income you get from the investments, if any
