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 14 December 2018.

The person concerned has been awarded WFP with effect from 15 November 2018 to 13 November 2019. The first weekly payment and all arrears owing will issue to their nominated bank account on 07 February 2019.

The person concerned was notified on 05 February 2019 of this decision and of their right of review and appeal.

I trust this clarifies the matter for the Deputy.
