The government have announced a Help to Save Account for low earners on certain benefits. Basically, if you can save £50 a month (maximum) over 4 years you get £1200 tax free bonus added. You can save less, but will get less --- 50% of the saved amount.

I imagine the bonus would get swallowed by the IVA if you are still in one (first half of the bonus paid at the end of two years) and, it might be hard to pop away even a few quid anyway ... but for those on a low income and qualifying benefits, once you have come out the other side, this could be useful.
