Written answers (Question to Employment)

The person concerned made an application for One Parent Family Payment (OFP) on the 18th June 2019. In order to qualify for this payment certain conditions must be met including satisfying a means test.

On the 9th July 2019, the person concerned was advised of outstanding documentation relating to a previous employment. Once the outstanding documents are submitted, the Deciding Officer will be in the position to finalise their decision on the person concerned's application for OFP.

I hope this clarifies the matter for the Deputy.
