4. In order to apply for your child, the child must live with you 51% or more and be listed as a dependent on your most recently filed IRS 1040. If the child is not listed on your most recently filed IRS 1040, then we need a copy of both your most recently filed IRS 1040 and the most recently filed IRS 1040 on which the child is listed as a dependent.

Is there financial criteria?
