Family Reference Person

The Family Reference Person (FRP) is identified by criteria based on the family make up.

 

  • In a lone parent family it is taken to be the lone parent.
  • In a couple family, the FRP is chosen from the two people in the couple on the basis of their economic activity (in the priority order: full-time job, part-time job, unemployed, retired, other). If both people have the same economic activity, the FRP is identified as the elder of the two or, if they are the same age, the first member of the couple on the form.
