Recipients of government benefits often need legal advice. You may have been accused of committing benefit fraud or have had your benefit stopped suddenly.
If you require legal advice and you are receiving government benefits, you may need assistance to help pay for legal costs. You can apply for legal aid for cases involving welfare benefits.
If you have more than £8,000 of accessible money you will not receive legal aid. If you have more than £3,000 you may have to contribute to your legal costs. You may also have to pay back legal aid if you are awarded compensation through the legal proceedings you bring.
