I'm the mother of a child who isn’t a Singapore citizen. Am I eligible for extended Government-Paid Maternity Leave?

No, you are not.

However, if you meet the other eligibility criteria, and your child becomes a Singapore citizen within 12 months of their birth, you’ll be able to take any remaining maternity leave, including the extended GPML.

Your date of delivery is 10 August 2013 and your child becomes a Singapore citizen on 10 February 2014. You have previously taken 8 weeks or less of maternity leave.

If your company agrees, you can take 8 weeks of flexible maternity leave anytime between 10 February and 9 August 2014.
