Working Family Payment (WFP) is an in-work payment which provides additional income support to employees on low earnings with children. In order to qualify for WFP an applicant must be engaged in

full-time paid employment as an employee for not less than 38 hours per fortnight.  

Working Family Payment for the person concerned is due for renewal from 6 March 2019. An application for Working Family Payment was received on 16 January 2019. The application was processed and awarded on 28 February 2019 and the person concerned was notified of the award decision.

I trust this clarifies the matter for the Deputy.
