There is no limit on the number of arrangements you can claim under the Small Pot provision, however, there is an  aggregate overall lifetime limit of £50,000.

Who is responsible for calculating and making payment of income tax on Triviality and Small Pot claims?

It is the responsibility of the Trustee of the pension arrangement to calculate and deduct the income tax before making payment.

Do I have the right to claim my pension fund under Triviality or Small Pot option?

Only if these options are specifically stated in the rules of your pension arrangement. Not all pension arrangements have updated their rules to incorporate the current Triviality or Small Pot provisions and there is no obligation on the pension providers or Trustees of the pension arrangement to do so.
