Insovency/leave

I am working as a bookkeeper. Last year I was granted voluntary surrendering of my estate, which means that I am now declared insolvent. My employer does not know about this. Should I have notified them of this and can it affect my position at all?
My second question is: I am 54 years old and I have worked for this company now for 11years. We get 15 working days a year leave. I am tired and burnt out at the moment and feel I just NEED a break. I cannot afford to resign and risk losing my income, can he refuse to give me unpaid leave should I request it.
I really feel as if I am heading for a complete burn out. Battling to concentrate, making silly errors, tearful, just an overall feeling of not coping.
Your advice will be appreciated
