The birth of a child brings happiness and joy to the family. As you step into parenthood you try to provide the best lifestyle & education for your children. Given life's uncertainties, it is important to secure their present as well as protect their future.

Here is what you can do:

Prepare a Financial Plan and Start Investing

Step-up investments. Draw up a financial plan and ascertain the maximum amount you can save every month. After factoring for an emergency corpus, allocate the remaining amount towards a good mix of insurance (life and health) and investments.

You can consider investing in child plans, like the Max Life Shiksha Plus Super, that offer a comprehensive solution for a secure and bright future of your child. In a plan like this, the parent is the life insured and the child is the nominee.

Buy a Term Cover

The term cover will serve as your #BackupPlan and help your family meet their basic financial requirements or liabilities in case you are not around. You can get a plan for as low as Rs. 576/ month*. You can calculate your customized premium in under 2 minutes.

Estimate Your Child's Financial Needs

Chart out the future you aspire for your child. Highlight the key milestones in her life and start earmarking amounts that you child will need in that period. Remember to use a future expense calculator to ascertain these amounts.

Be Sure to Factor in Inflation

Inflation can derail even the most carefully planned finances. In such a scenario, a robust yet flexible combination of investments and protection can help you get started on the journey to wealth creation for your little one.

Prioritize and Improvise

Insurance companies offer several types of plans. Since you are planning to build a corpus for your child, a combination of a Term Plan (for protection) and a Child Plan (for wealth creation) is a great way to get started. Also choose an appropriate set of riders to make the most of these plans.

With well planned investments and focus on long-term investing, you can easily attain your financial goals.
