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 children, relative to family size.

An application for WFP was received from the person concerned on 07 October 2019.

They have been awarded WFP for 52 weeks with effect from 12 September 2019 to 09 September 2020. The first weekly payment and all arrears owing will issue to their nominated financial account on 08 November 2019.

The person concerned was notified of this decision on 06 November 2019 and of the right of review and appeal.

I trust this clarifies the matter for the Deputy.
