Woman accused of benefit fraud
A Cambuslang woman has been accused of receiving over £5000 in benefits to which she was not entitled.
Elizabeth Houston, of Jura Terrace, appeared at Glasgow Sheriff Court on Wednesday, September 9.
On various occasions between May 12, 2009 and June 26, 2014, both dates inclusive, at properties at Clifton Terrace and Jura Terrace, Houston (62) is accused of failing to give the Department of Work and Pensions prompt notifications of a change in circumstances which she knew affected her entitlement to income support.
It is alleged she failed to report her husband was in receipt of an annuity and is thus accused of gaining payments of income support to the total of £5200.43 to which she was not entitled.
She maintained a plea of not guilty and is due to reappear on January 11.
Bail was continued.
