Woman denies falsely claiming disability benefits for 10 years

A 57-year-old woman has been charged with falsely claiming disability benefits for 10 years – amassing £65,000.

Kay Woodward allegedly failed to tell the Department for Work and Pensions of a change of circumstances affecting her claim to Disability Living Allowance between 2005 and 2015.

It is alleged her mobility had improved and her care needs reduced.

She is also charged with dishonestly making a false statement by exaggerating a man’s mobility and care needs in a claim for Disability Living Allowance in October 2008.

Woodward, representing herself, did not enter pleas but confirmed that she would be contesting the allegations, reports plymouthherald .

Judge Ian Lawrie set down a trial to take a week to start on December 11l

Woodward, of Beaumont Street, Milehouse, was released on bail until that date.
