Thank you for your reply.
It is not a question of you being barred, the home office would have clearly stated on your residence permit that you should not have access to public funds, if in your case you have had access to public funds the home office would take this as being a breach of your visas conditions and therefore would refusal any application for indefinite leave to remain on this basis.
If however, all the benefits are being taken in your spouse's name and you are not benefiting or relying on those benefits and are undertaking work etc to maintain and accommodate yourself then this would give you a better chance of obtaining indefinite leave to remain.
In your case it seems that you are reliant on the public funds and benefits being received, therefore it is unlikely that an application for indefinite leave to remain is successful. If you however, still which to proceed with applying for indefinite leave to remain then you would need to convince the home office of why you have to rely on public funds and your current circumstances will them be taken into account and a decision will be made.
I hope this answers your question if however you feel that the answer does not cover all the points raised in your question please do not hesitate to ask further questions until you are satisfied with my answer.
Kind regards
