#4904 Hi.
I went bankrupt on disability benefits and I was assured by the OR they would not take anything.

I have also read about this in several places all of which said the same.

I'm sure you should be fine.

#4906 Yes - Simon on Ask the Expert has never seen them take an IPA from anyone who is living completely on benefits (and he has helped an awful lot of people do this) and neither have I. Think about it - benefits are there just to allow people to live and special ones like DLA are to improve the quality of someone's life who is disabled.

Don't worry about this one.
