Your pension is normally a fixed monthly amount, which you may be able to change only once a year depending on what type of annuity it is (i.e "living" annuity versus "life" annuity). The level at which you withdraw is also subject to regulatory limits so you won't be able to draw a large random amount to pay into your housing loan. It is probably best to speak to your Financial Advisor who is managing your pension for further advice.
