Eligible child's details



This information may not apply to the current year. Check the content carefully to ensure it is applicable to your circumstances.

End of attention

Who is the eligible child?

The eligible child is the child you have identified at step 2 under Are you the eligible person for the baby bonus in these instructions.

Child's name

Print your eligible child's name in the relevant boxes. Make sure that you complete both the Surname or family name and Given names.

Child's date of birth

Write the eligible child's date of birth on your claim.




If your child died during the year but before their fifth birthday, print B in the code box at the right of O on your claim. This extends your eligibility for the baby bonus to the end of the income year and, if you are the eligible person, lets you claim the baby bonus for another child in a future year.

Date you became legally responsible for the child

Only complete this date if you gained legal responsibility of the child (for example, through a court order) and this date is different to your child's date of birth.
