Good morning thank you for your question. The phrase 'deprivatation of assets' refers to people giving away assets such as part of their home, to avoid these assets being used for care home fees, so in effect they are depriving the local authority of assets.
If you are on benefits and have not declared significant assets to the DWP then this is not the same thing, basically you are referring to possible benefit fraud which could result in a large overpayment of benefits that you would not have been entitled to and possible prosecution.
Good morning please contact me again if you need further assistance.
