Written answers (Question to Employment)

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

An application for WFP was received from the person concerned on 08 August 2019.

The person concerned has been awarded WFP with effect from 08 August 2019 to 05 August 2020. The first weekly payment and all arrears owing will issue to their selected financial account on 27 August 2019.

The person concerned was notified on 23 August 2019 of this decision and of the right of review and appeal.

I trust this clarifies the matter for the Deputy.
