Why are your posts so often misleading or potentially worrying?
The company has the debts, not the director.
If he resigns as director, the shareholders (presumably him) will have to appoint a new director. Why bother resigning? The directorship will terminate soon enough.
Benefits are an entitlement if you are not earning enough or not employed. Check with the local benefits office, but I suggest that if the company is no longer trading, it is no longer employing. To be entitled to jobseekers you need the able to look for a job and take one if offered. I am sure that as the company is not trading, you are available for work.
The entitlement to benefits has nothing to do with being a director.
