Interface with Other Government Assistance Schemes


  The following cannot be received concurrently with WFA in the same month:
    Comprehensive Social Security Assistance (CSSA)
    Individual-based Work Incentive Transport Subsidy (WITS) (applicable to the WFA-applicant and other household members whose working hours have been aggregated to apply for WFA)
      [Notes:
      1. Household members whose working hours have not been aggregated to apply for WFA may apply for individual-based WITS.
      2. Household-based WITS is abolished on 1 April 2018. If a household applying for WFA has received household-based WITS for individual claim months before April 2018, the household cannot receive WFA concurrently for the relevant months.]
  Allowances that need to be counted in household income:
    Allowances received by household members from the individual-based WITS
    Allowances received under the Pilot Scheme on Living Allowance for Carers of Elderly Persons from Low-income Families
    Allowances received under the Pilot Scheme on Living Allowance for Low-income Carers of Persons with Disabilities
      [Note: Starting from 1 April 2018, the Old Age Living Allowance is not taken into account under the income test.]
