Can I use these phrases when referring to the poor?

- poor members of society
- the marginalized group
- financially challenged individuals
- people living below the poverty line
- poverty-stricken individuals/people/society
- destitute people/individuals


Here's what I advise:

- poor members of society - YES
- the marginalized group - NO
- financially challenged individuals - NO
- people living below the poverty line - YES
- poverty-stricken individuals/people/society - YES
- destitute people/individuals -NO

I wonder whether the following phrases of poor and poverty are correct to use in Task 1

- people from poor background
- people with financial hardship
- deprived people
- people from poor area
- people who are on social benefits
