Working Family Payment (WFP) is an in work, income tested payment which provides additional income support to employees on low earnings with children.  WFP applications are processed based on an applicant's circumstances, including employment earnings and income status that apply at the time of application.

An application for WFP was received from the person concerned on 06 May 2021. 

The Department wrote to the person concerned on 12 May 2021, to request further employment related information and documentary evidence.  The requested information has not been provided to date.  The person concerned has been contacted by the Department on 26 May 2021 and they have confirmed that the requested details will be submitted shortly.

On receipt of the requested information from the person concerned, a decision will be completed on their application without delay, and they will be notified in writing.

I hope this clarifies the matter for the Deputy.
