Parental leave changes


Frequent Poster

I have looked this up but cannot find definitive answer

My question is, based on the increase parental leave changes announced recently, will I be eligible for the extra weeks if my children are now age 10 and 11?

I know the additional weeks are being phased in over 2019 and 2020 but I'm not sure when the upper age of 12 applies from.

Also if my child is 11 now but turning 12 in October does it mean the leave for that child must be taken before turning 12 or will it still apply after 12th birthday but before 13th?

Thanks in advance
