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

A review of the Working Family Payment entitlement for the person concerned was carried out recently. A revised decision was issued to the person concerned on 05 September 2019 and Working Family Payment arrears were paid to the person concerned on the 12 September 2019.

I trust this clarifies the matter.
