Working Family Payment (formerly Family Income Supplement) is a weekly tax free payment which provides additional income support to employees on low earnings with children.

Working Family Payment for the person concerned will continue in payment until the  9 October 2019, when working family payment is due for renewal. A renewal form issued to the person concerned on 31 July 2019.  When the person concerned is returning the application form a fulltime education certificate should be provided from the college/university for the dependent daughter.

I trust this clarifies the matter.
