Hi, welcome to JustAnswer. My name is Jo C, I’m a barrister with 12 years of experience and I am happy to help with your question today.
can you give me all the background information please
Ok, are you asking if you can report this? Or what are the consequences of not doing so?
The short answer is that it depends if they catch you. If they do then you could be prosecuted. There is an offense that allows them to prosecute men who are living with women who claimed illegally.
Isn't the solution though just to phone them and declare that this amount has been claimed in error. You can do it in a way that is truthful by just saying that you as a family have received this amount and you do not believe you are entitled to it. They should just ask you to repay and that should be the end of that
Yes, so do it yourself without her input. You can always write in. She won't be happy but it is a lot better than being prosecuted.
No problem and all the best.
