I got a notice about my Working for Families payments - what do I do next?

You will usually receive a notice from us in February or March every year, if you are receiving Working for Families. The notice will tell you what your payments will be from 01 April. It also tells you your income and family details we've used to work out how much to pay you.

If we don’t have enough details to work out the correct payments, we will send you a letter to ask you for more information.

If the details in the notice are correct, you don’t need to do anything. If anything is wrong in the notice, you will need to let us know.
