Working Family Payment (WFP) - SW 22


Print page

When a couple apply for WFP, both are considered to be WFP claimants. However, WFP is made payable to the person who is engaged in paid employment as an employee.

If both of you are working, it is payable to the person whose earnings are the greater portion of the WFP Income Test.

However, WFP is paid into your nominated bank account and can be paid into joint bank accounts.
