Common types of child plans

Child plans are available in different variants and can be taken to suit individual needs and requirements. The following types of plan variants come in the child plan category:

Traditional Endowment Plans

These type of plans come for a longer tenure and have the following features:

  • The plans may or may not be eligible to earn the bonuses which the insurance company declares. The bonus participation depends on the design of the plan. Usually child plans come with the bonus earning feature if they are offered as a traditional endowment plan.
  • The premium, the term for which the premium is to be paid, Sum Assured, maturity benefit and the death benefit is fixed beforehand. While the benefits payable, except bonus, is mentioned in the policy brochure, the premium will depend on the age and the choice of Sum Assured.
  • If the insured parent dies when the term is still continuing, the specified death benefit is paid to the nominee. The policy will continue but the child will not be required to pay any premiums. On maturity, the promised maturity benefit will be paid along with the accumulated bonuses.

Traditional Money-back Plans

Money-back plans are the most popular choice of child insurance plans among investors. These plans do not block the money like in case of the endowment plans but provide certain proportion of the Sum Assured at different intervals. Some features of these plans are mentioned hereunder:

  • The plans have the feature of providing a part of the Sum Assured at different intervals which are mentioned in the policy.
  • Bonuses are usually declared in money back plans.
  • The part of the Sum Assured which is paid at different intervals in between the policy tenure is called the Survival Benefits.
  • On maturity, the remaining part of the Sum Assured along with the aggregate bonuses which the policy has earned over the years is paid to the policyholder.
  • If the policyholder dies, the total Sum Assured is paid to the nominee irrespective of the Survival Benefits which are already paid. The plan will continue just like in case of traditional endowment plans. Survival benefits will continue to accrue as and when they were promised. On maturity, the pre-defined maturity benefit is also payable.

Unit linked child plans

The insurance plans which are linked to reflect market growth are also available in the child plan category. Their features include:

  • The policyholder will decide the amount of premium he wants to invest based on which the Sum Assured will be calculated.
  • The premiums will be invested in the funds which are invested in the market. As such, the policyholder can enjoy the benefit of market growth.
  • These plans promise three distinct benefits. One can enjoy wealth maximization through market participation, have insurance protection and also create a fund for the child’s future.
  • The plan can be taken for shorter duration.
  • There are various flexible options like partial withdrawals, premium redirection, switching, top-ups, etc.
  • On maturity or on death, the fund value will be payable which will depend on the market returns on the premiums invested.
  • The benefit of the inbuilt rider is also available in this variety of the plan.
