Mother Collecting Disability Payments Makes Huge Mistake

In 2007, Joy Taylor filed a claim for disability benefits following a serious leg injury in an accident. She recovered in 2009 and was supposed to stop receiving benefits at that time. Yet, while collecting $153,265 in government benefits for being "housebound," she was caught partying in rock concerts in a series of photos. Her mother, Linda Taylor, also received an overpayment of $145,601.

They are now being questioned by the British government. Joy, the mother of a 6-year-old boy named Rhys, was caught in photos at several festivals and concerts — despite claiming that she was housebound and disabled the entire time.

She and her mother were given suspended sentences after admitting to making false claims for financial gain. Taylor said, “I definitely had a good time, I loved going out and dancing, seeing bands, enjoying myself, but that's all over now. I've calmed down, I want to get a job and carry on being a good mum to Rhys. I'm sorry it happened, I'm not a bad person and I've never been in trouble with the law before but the temptation was too much."
