Written answers (Question to Employment)

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

Working Family Payment for the person concerned is due to expire on the 05/06/2019.

A Working Family Payment renewal application was received from the person concerned on 18 April 2019. This renewal application has now been processed and the person concerned will be entitled to Working Family payment at a rate of €43 per week from the 06/06/2019. This payment will continue for 52 weeks from that date.

I trust this clarifies the matter for the Deputy.
