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 qualified children.

An application for WFP was received from the person concerned on 05 June 2019.

The Department wrote to the person concerned on 11 July 2019 to request other employment-related details.

On receipt of the requested details from the person concerned their WFP application will be processed without delay and they will be notified of the outcome.

I trust this clarifies the matter for the Deputy.
