    So it seems you want to force as well both the day and month ie :

     d.setDate(1); // want to force 1st ?
     d.setMonth(0); // want to force January ?
     d.setFullYear(d.getFullYear() + 60);

    Edit: or building the date you want rather than changing values : var d = new Date(new Date().getFullYear()+60,0);

    For now the problem is that you don't do anything with the day and you decrease the month by 1 when it seems you want January 1st ?

    Ok and ? The js above should give the result you asked for. If this is not what you actually want tell us more.

    Hi zhyanadil.it@gmail.com,

    The d.getMonth() in your js will get the month of today(2019.7.25).

    First, you need to assign a value to d. Please refer:

    var d = new Date(document.getElementById('date_of_birth').value);

    Then, change the setMonth method to:


    Best Regard,
