Working Family Payment (WFP), formerly known as Family Income Supplement, is a weekly tax-free payment which provides additional income support to employees on low earnings with children WFP is paid for fifty-two weeks at a time and a person must re-apply at the end of each fifty-two week period to have their payment renewed.

The Working Family Payment of the person concerned is due for renewal on 6th June 2018 when his weekly payment will increase to €112.00 per week.

I hope this clarifies the matter for the Deputy.
