A Castlemilk woman has been ac­cused of gain­ing over £20,000 of ben­e­fit pay­ments to which she was not en­ti­tled.

Janet Mar­garet Ga­van, of Ar­den­craig Street, ap­peared at Glas­gow Sher­iff Court on Tues­day ( July 21).

It is al­leged that the 39-yearold, be­tween Fe­bru­ary 4, 2008, and May 15, 2008, and be­tween July 26, 2010, and De­cem­ber 25, 2013, failed to give prompt no­ti­fi­ca­tion to the depart­ment of work and pen­sions of a change of cir­cum­stances that alledgedly af­fected her en­ti­tle­ment to Wid­owed Moth­ers Al­lowance.

It is al­leged that Ga­van was liv­ing in the house­hold with a man who was in full time em­ploy­ment and thus gained £22,503.92 to which she was not en­ti­tled.

Ga­van pleaded not guilty. The case was ad­journed and Ga­van was or­dained to ap­pear on Au­gust 4.
