A Fife woman admitted obtaining almost £47,000 by benefit fraud over a period of three years.
Leona Blair, 49, whose address was given as South Avenue, Blairhall, went on trial before a jury at Dunfermline Sheriff Court.
During the trial, she changed her plea and admitted two of four charges she faced.
Blair became the subject of an undercover surveillance operation and the court was shown video footage which was taken of her, including on a shopping trip to an Asda supermarket.
She admitted that on various occasions between July 20 2013 and April 21 2016 at Blair Grove, Blairhall, she made a false statement to the Department for Work and Pensions that she lived alone except for her dependent children when she was actually living with a partner.
In doing so, she obtained £23,135.71 to which she was not entitled.
She also admitted that on various occasions between April 6 2013 and March 4 2016 she was concerned in fraudulent activity by failing to declare she was living with a partner and maintaining a common household with him, obtaining £23,628.52 to which she was not entitled.
After Blair pled guilty to the charges, Sheriff Charles MacNair deferred sentence and called for background reports.
Blair is expected to be sentenced on April 17.
