Investing in a child insurance plan might not seem like a good idea because a child does not have a financial value (there is no insurable interest) nor are there any liabilities or dependents. However, there is a misconception that the child’s life is to be insured. The truth is that in a child plan, the parent is the life assured while the child is the nominee!
A child plan is a popular financial vehicle to build a corpus for your child. It takes into account the various milestones in your child’s future for which a substantial amount of money might be needed. Here is why you should consider investing:
A child life insurance plan provides you the dual benefit of investment and insurance. It safeguards the various milestones in her life by providing an insurance cover at all times. On maturity the proceeds can be used for any of the financials needs.
Good education is the best gift that parents can give their children. However, quality education comes at a price. In addition to the basic tuition, expenses towards extra-curricular activities, field trips, etc., add up to a significant amount. A market-linked investment plan helps you achieve higher returns by making your portfolio inflation-proof.
Since a child insurance policy has a Surrender Value, it can be offered as collateral to avail a loan. Based on the value of the underlying fund, the loan amount can vary.
Child insurance plans come with a Waiver of Premium Rider. This ensures that in case of your death, all the future premiums will be waived and the remaining dues will be paid by the insurance company. So no matter what happens, your child is entitled to a lump sum amount for his future.
