Who can use the app for online Birth Registration?

To access the online Birth Registration service in the app, both you and your spouse must:

  • be Singapore citizens
  • have Singpass/Myinfo accounts
  • have registered your marriage in Singapore.

I am not married or I am separated/divorced. How can I register for the birth of my child?

You can register your child's birth at the Immigration & Checkpoints Authority (ICA).

As a single parent, can I use the app to apply for Baby Bonus?

Yes, you can access the Baby Bonus website on the LifeSG app. Check your child's eligibility for the Baby Bonus Scheme and open a Child Development Account (CDA).

To apply, please follow the steps below.

  1. Go to "Menu"
  2. Select "Family and parenting" under "Services"
  3. Select "Apply for Baby Bonus" under "BABY BONUS", where you will be linked directly to the Baby Bonus website in-app
  4. Log in with your Singpass

I did not register the birth of my child using the app. Now that I have collected my child’s Birth Certificate, can I still use the app to apply for Baby Bonus?

Yes, you can access the Baby Bonus website via the LifeSG app.

To apply, please follow the steps below:

  1. Go to “Menu”
  2. Select “Family and parenting” under “Services”
  3. Select “Apply for Baby Bonus” under "BABY BONUS", where you will be linked directly to the Baby Bonus website in-app
  4. Log in with your Singpass

My spouse does not have a Singpass account. What should I do?

Your spouse will need to register for a Singpass account online at the Singpass website.

If your spouse is unable to get a Singpass account, you can register the birth either:

  • at the hospital where your child was born
  • or at the Immigration & Checkpoints Authority (ICA).

Can I change the name of my child after submitting the Birth Registration application through the app?

Yes, you can still change your child’s name when you collect the birth certificate at the hospital or Immigration & Checkpoints Authority (ICA).

At your BC collection appointment, you must make changes to your child’s name before the birth certificate (BC) is printed and signed. Once the BC is finalised and signed, any further changes will be chargeable.
