Paid parental leave (PPL) application - IR880

Use this form to apply for paid parental leave (PPL).

You can apply for PPL before your parental leave starts, or at any time while you're on leave - you need to apply before you return to work or self-employment.

To complete this form, you will need:

  • your IRD number
  • birth date or expected due date of your child (or child under 6 years old who is now in your primary care)
  • your bank account number and tax code
  • proof you have care of the child, and
  • details of your work and income for the last 52 weeks.

This form includes a declaration to confirm the income and work details you have provided. You need to fill in the applicant's section, and then take the form to either:

  • your employer
  • your chartered accountant or tax advisor, or
  • a Justice of the Peace (or other person authorised to witness a statutory declaration).

When all sections of the form have been completed, send the form to us at the following address:
