Written answers (Question to Employment)

Working Family Payment (WFP) is an in-work payment which provides additional income support to employees on low earnings with children.

An application for WFP was received from the person concerned on 28 November 2018.

The Department wrote to the applicant on 30 January 2019 to request further details.

On receipt of the requested details, the application will be processed without delay and they will be notified of the outcome.

I trust this clarifies the matter for the Deputy.
