This is a discussion on enquiry about baby bonus within the General Parenting Discussion forum, part of the Growing Up & Parenting category; will we be eligible for the baby bonus if I am singapore citizen while my hubby is PR?...
will we be eligible for the baby bonus if I am singapore citizen while my hubby is PR?
As long as baby is a Singaporean, he/she will be entitled to the baby bonus..
i think its auto now that the child of a singaporean will be a singapore citizen.
1. cash gift
it'll be bank in to the a/c that you provided.. the a/c holder must be above 21..
it'll be given seperately 4 times.. at birth, 6 month, 12 month and 18 month... amt depends on whether it's first born etc etc...
2. CDA a/c
it's the $ to $ match ... you can bank in wateva amt you want from the opening of the a/c until the child's 6years old.. but there's a cap.. they'll only match till that amt..
yup.. you can bank in any amt at any time till the child is 6 years old... let's sae you bank in $100 on 15may09, the match will be available by 1jun09.. so at 1jun09 you'll have $200 in the CDA a/c...
just wondering. I have to open an account first before im eligible for the bonus? and I read its onli standard chartered and another bank (i forgot which one )...any advise?
was told to submit the baby bonus form to OCBC counter..
you just have to fill in the form, then they will open a bank account for your baby.. they will mail you the details in 1 month time..
