Since June 2018, LifeSG (formerly known as Moments of Life) has been making the birth registration process simpler. Parents who register their child’s birth with LifeSG take just 15 minutes, instead of 60 minutes. By 2022, 80% of parents who are eligible to register their child’s birth online choose to do so with LifeSG.
All parents can register the birth of their child on the LifeSG website. Parents who are eligible for a Singpass account can also do it on the app.
If their child is eligible, parents will apply for Baby Bonus in the same application. This includes the cash gift and Child Development Account (CDA).
If their child is a Singapore citizen, parents can also sign them up for a free membership with the National Library Board in the same application.
On 29 May 2022, LifeSG launched an improved version of the birth registration service to coincide with the introduction of digital birth certificates. With the improvements, all parents will now use LifeSG to register the birth of a child in Singapore. One step closer to simpler services and better lives.
