I have the option of taking two pensions that I plan on taking

Resolved Question:

I have the option of taking two pensions that I plan on taking from my 56th birthday. The first is a defined benefits scheme and I plan take £35k as a cash free lump sum. The 2nd is a stakeholder pension that will allow me to take 25% (£17,000) tax free. My question is "am i allowed to take both tax free amounts" in this tax year. I will continue in part time employment earning approx £12,000 pa.
