Working Family Payment (WFP) - SW 22

Print page

You cannot get WFP if you already get: 

  • Jobseeker’s Benefit/Allowance
  • Illness/Injury Benefit
  • Partial Capacity Benefit,
  • Farm Assist, or
  • Pre-Retirement Allowance.

Legislation excludes people engaged in a work placement programme, Community Employment, Rural Social Scheme, National Internship Scheme or Tús. This effectively provides that payments under these schemes are not payable at the same time as working family payment.

You also cannot get WFP if your spouse, civil partner or cohabitant is claiming an increase in respect of you from the above payments or schemes.
