Gather your information

You will need your IRD number.

Your partner will need:

  • their IRD number and tax code
  • information about their income
  • a declaration from your employer, chartered accountant or tax advisor, or a statutory declaration witnessed by a Justice of the Peace, or other person authorised to witness statutory declarations.

Fill in the form and send it to us

Send your completed form to:

What happens next

If your partner is eligible for paid parental leave we will send them a payment advice letter that tells them:

  • their weekly paid parental leave entitlement amount
  • the amount of their regular fortnightly payments
  • the dates when all their payments will be received.

Their first and last payments might be different to their regular fortnightly amounts. These will depend on the start date of their paid parental leave.

My responsibilities

You need to complete a Paid parental leave application - IR880 form if you have not already.
