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

An application for WFP was received from the person concerned on 26 November 2018.

The Department wrote to the applicant on 25 January 2019 and has requested additional information.

On receipt of the requested details from the person concerned their WFP application will be processed without delay and they will be notified of the decision.

I trust this clarifies the matter for the Deputy.
