Benefit fraud

Many ordinary 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 it’s natural to wonder what will happen. Whatever situation you are facing, our experienced solicitors 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. Perhaps you made a mistake unintentionally which has led you to be accused of benefit fraud.

Usually the first time you’ll 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 receive a fine or be taken to court.

If you have been notified that you are going to be investigated for benefit fraud, or you have been invited to an interview under caution, it’s a good idea to seek legal advice. At QualitySolicitors we have helped lots of people involved in benefit fraud cases and can provide the support and guidance you need.
