Working Family Allowance Scheme (WFA)
The Working Family and Student Financial Assistance Agency is implementing the Working Family Allowance Scheme (WFA). The WFA encourages self-reliance and eases inter-generational poverty. Application for the WFA Scheme is on a household basis (including singleton households). Under the WFA Scheme, a household meeting the working hour requirements, income and asset limits may apply for a Basic Allowance, Medium Allowance or Higher Allowance. Each eligible child may also be eligible for a Child Allowance. Depending on the household income, the allowances may be granted at full rate, 3/4 rate or half rate.
