How do I switch the Universal Child Care Benefit to my wife?

In the first section, I put the UCCB under me, but it comes to my wife.  How do I make the switch over?  I can't find the option anywhere.

It doesn't matter who the UCCB came to. It should be claimed by the spouse with the lower income. 

From  http://www.cra-arc.gc.ca/tx/ndvdls/tpcs/ncm-tx/rtrn/cmpltng/rprtng-ncm/lns101-170/117-eng.html ... :

" If you had a  spouse  or  common-law partner  on December 31, 2014, the one of you with the  lower  net income must report the UCCB. Report on  line 117  the amount shown in  box 10  of the RC62 slip ."


TurboTax does this automatically.

I have the lower income and Turbo Tax did not automatically select me as the lower income earner.
