Working Family Payment (formerly Family Income Supplement) is a weekly tax free payment which provides additional income support to employees on low earnings with children.

WFP for the person concerned was due for renewal from 30 October 2019 and an application was received on 29 August 2019

In order to process the claim, as the person concerned had a 2nd employment further information was requested on 21 October 2019 and this information was provided to us on 18 November 2019.

The person concerned has now been awarded WFP with effect from 31 October 2019 to 28 October 2020.

I trust this clarifies the matter for the Deputy.
