Hi john10698,
Welcome to the forum, sorry to hear about your redundancy, JSA is not a lot of money I doubt you would be able to afford to live and pay your IVA from it, If you dont mind me asking how much is your monthly IVA payment.
If life is what you make it, I must have been in a strange mood when I made mine

If you have any redundancy pay due you will be able to use this for a while to fund your normal monthly bills.

I doubt if you would get enough JSA to fund your living expenses and your IVA payments.

You need to speak to your IP as soon as possible.

Is there any reason you don't want to go bankrupt if you can't get another job?

What provisions were there in your IVA for redundancy. If your IP presented your IVA in accordance with the terms of the IVA Protocol, then you ought to have this ably covered within the terms.
