Default ILR cash savings: any employer letter required?

I'm planning to apply for ILR with cash savings as I did for my first spouse visa and FLR.

In the past I've not needed to supply any kind of employer letter, so I assume this is only required if relying on an income category. I'm not sure though, even in reviewing the application again - can anyone confirm if they will still be looking for confirmation of some kind of job for ILR even if I'm in Category D?

Thanks.

We have just got our ILR through cash savings route. We didn't include anything for employment.

Do you know what to include for cash savings evidence?

Thanks so much for your reply. I've used my US Fidelity statements [IRA/401(k)] in the past (6 months). Do you know any reason I might require something different for ILR?

Congrats on your ILR success - I can't wait to be on the other side of it.

If you have used them in past then great. It was my first time doing the savings route, previously used salary. But i'm sure there are others here who can help if you have more questions.

If you've used cash saving's before, just submit the same proofs and new declaration letter.

Thanks. If I’m able to swing the full amount on 6 months of regular savings in a bank account, my current account statements (from the post) are good enough, right? Plus the declaration?

Yes Delaration for the source of funds. you should include some kind of evidence of the source. If they're from regular savings, just provide one or two statements showing payments into account. hope this helps.
