I would like to know if the original marriage cert is needed during the registration of name for my baby. or just a duplicate copy is sufficient..
yes must be original. i packed all the necessary document in my bag for delivery
Original I/c of both parents and original married cert.
I did my baby's birth cert @ Thomson medical as they have the services there..Its a bit more expensive than if you were to go down to the ICA building..If remember correctly,Thomson charges $30+ while at the ICA buliding,they will charge $18...But for convenience sake,i did @ Thomson.
They need ICs of both parents as well as the ORIGINAL marriage cert..I got my baby's birth cert right there and then...So convenient..!! You can even register for the baby bonus as they have a counter @ Thomson.Hubby did both on the second day after i delivered..
yup register at the hospital is much more convenient though hav to pay slightly more.. actually all hospital has such service =)
what is the grace period for us to reg the baby's bc?
i was thinkin of bringin her to the fortune teller for her chinese name
I registered my girl's name exactly 1 month after she was born
ic...how much n which shifu did you looked consulted?
the hospital provides one-stop service for BC registratn and baby bonus matters.
more convenient to do at hospital (since the hubbies have to visit your wives everyday, i did everythin there since nothin to do)
on the spot can get the birth cert! better to do baby bonus there so that the acct can be opened quicker (use OCBC better than Stanchart from experience). for us, it is crucial as cordlife need to deduct the full pmt within 2 mths of birth.
My dad is able to interpret the chines almanac (tong sheng) and also does freelance fengshiu (his possess a unique godgiven way of "reading" the surroundings).
so my baby name was given by him.
- counting of suitable names according to the chinese 8 characters so as to complement the parents' 8 characters
- 25 name combination and the interpretation/meaning of each name
- explanation of the name and impact to the child's life for you
- insight to the child's future 50 years of life and if there are any special events/years you will need to take note of.
do i need to hold an ocbc acct & the baby's bc before i can register for baby bonus?
you may use any existing account (DBS/POSB/UOB etc.) to receive the $4000 cash gift. And at the hospital itself you will open Another OCBC/ Standard Chartered CDA account for your children. you will need the baby's birth cert to reg for baby bonus.
