Welfare Benefits

The welfare benefits system is full of complex and technical rules, it can be very scary for a claimant to be told they are going to lose the benefits that they have become reliant on, or are going to be subject to an accusation of benefit fraud which could lead to a prison sentence and having to repay overpaid benefits.
