Department of Employment Affairs and Social Protection
Working Family Payment Applications
258. To ask the Minister for Employment Affairs and Social Protection the status of a working family payment application by persons (details supplied); and if she will make a statement on the matter. [41498/19]
Working Family Payment (WFP) is an in-work weekly payment which provides additional financial support to employees on low earnings with children, relative to family size.
An application for WFP was received from the person (family) concerned on 08 October 2019.
The Department has written to them to request further employment-related details.
On receipt of the requested details from the person concerned, their WFP application will be processed without delay and they will be notified in writing of the decision.
I trust this clarifies the matter for the Deputy.
