I made what I thought was a voluntary disclosure of over claiming a benefit. i was entitled for a few years but i neglected to inform them that one of my children had gone overseas to stay with the mother. Therefore WINZ kept paying a benefit to me in the mistaken belief that both children were with me. So once I disclosed to them they have decided to prosecute even though I disclosed in order to make amends and make restitution.
