Hi thank you for your message, there are three kinds of job seekers allowance, the ‘new style’ JSA, contribution-based JSA or income-based JSAWhich types you can get depends on your circumstances. In your circumstances you would not be eligible for the latter two, therefore, new style JSA may be available to you. Drawing down on your pension would not make you ineligible for this as it is not income based. You can see the full list of criteria here: https://www.gov.uk/jobseekers-allowance/eligibility
