You've been sent a notice of entitlement because you're receiving weekly or fortnightly Working for Families payments.

We send you a notice in February or March, before the start of the next tax year. The notice tells you what your payments will be from 1 April. The notice also tells you the income and family details we've used to work out how much to pay you.

If we do not have enough details to work out the right payments, we'll send you a letter to ask you for more information.

You’ll get a new notice any time your payments change.
