It may do to take into account her needs. Speak to your IP to clarify this.

I don't know - contact them before she gets this allowance and see what their stance is. Is it guaranteed?

As I say, if your wife's income has not been taken into the IVA payment, then any allowance she gets will not be of interest to your IP. As Kallis says, you need to clarify this with Stepchange. We can only guess as we have not got your paperwork to examine.
My opinions are merely that .. opinions based on experience. Always seek professional advice.

I don't know how your IP works so you do need to speak to them.

If they ask you would have to supply them but we don't know and it is best you speak to your IP

They will probably assume that she contributes half of the household expenses.
