Working Family Payment (WFP) - SW 22

Print page


Full-time employment means that you work at least 19 hours every week (or 38 hours every fortnight) and that your job is likely to last at least 3 months.

Casual work, such as seasonal work of less than 3 months, and certain Government employment schemes do not count as full-time employment.

However, work under Job Initiative, Community Services Programme and Part-time Job Incentive is full-time employment for the purposes of WFP.

You will not get WFP for any week you claim Jobseeker’s Benefit or Jobseeker’s Allowance.
