Worried I've committed benefit fraud watch

    • Thread Starter

    This might not belong in this section but I'm really worried and want to stay anon....

    My hours were cut in february to 7.5 a week, so under the amount for JSA. I signed on JSA to make up the money. They gave me B7s to fill out, but I had to fill these out BEFORE I got my payslip. When I got my payslip, I was given a £60 bonus, aswell as an extra £1 per hour on sundays (but I only get it some weeks, not all the time)- meaning sometimes I get around £49 a week BUT to the jobcentre I delared £45 a week

    The jobcentre pay me £11 a week (they discount the first £5 you earn, and then deduct what you earn from about £51 a week). I am worried they will find out about the bonus and the sunday premiums and take me to court....I mentioned to the JC about the bonus and they didn't give me much of an answer about it....

    Please help because I'm really worried I'm going to get in deep trouble for this

    If you've mentioned to the JC about the bonus, and they haven't done anything about it, then it is not your fault at all. The very worst they can do is take the money they've given you back off you again.
    Don't worry.
