  • 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.

    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 eligible child died during the year (after 30 June 2005) and 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 eligible child in a future year.

    Date you became legally responsible for the child

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

    If you are an adoptive parent and your base year is either the year before, or the year that, the child came into your care you do not write the date you became legally responsible for the child. You must write the date the child came into your care at Q. If this date is earlier than 1 July 2001, write 1 July 2001.
