Resolved Question:

My very small pension is paid monthly into an ISA account. I try to leave it there for emergencies. However I understand that pension money is not covered by the Government's guarantee should my bank go bust. Can you tell me if that refers to this money? My own feeling is that once I have received it, it becomes cash spending money and therefore is no longer a pension pot. Am I right?

You are correct. Once a pension is paid it is treated as cash.
