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 03 October 2018.

Their application was referred to a local Social Welfare Officer (SWI) for further clarification. The relevant SWI has confirmed that the report will be completed shortly.

On receipt of the completed report from the SWI, their WFP application will be processed without delay and the person concerned will be notified of the decision.

I trust this clarifies the matter for the Deputy.
