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 13 December 2018.

The applicant has been awarded WFP with effect from 13 September 2018 to 11 September 2019.

The first weekly payment and all arrears owing will issue to their nominated bank account on 1 February 2019.

The person concerned was notified on 29 January 2019 of this decision and of the right of review and appeal.

I trust this clarifies the matter for the Deputy.
