Many people can find themselves accused of benefit fraud for a number of reasons. If you have been accused of benefit fraud it can be a stressful time and can arise as a result of an honest mistake. Whatever situation you are facing, our experienced lawyers can help.
If you have failed to report a change in your circumstances or provided incorrect information when applying for benefits, you could be investigated for benefit fraud.
Usually the first time you will be aware that you might be investigated is when you are contacted by the Department of Work and Pensions (DWP) or your local authority. They may visit you or ask you to attend an interview to discuss your case. Depending on the outcome of the investigations, you could be taken to court.
