About LIC’s Children's Deferred Endowment Assurance Plan

It is a deferred endowment child plan by LIC that enables parents to cover the lives of their children. This means that the child is the life assured and the parent is the proposer of the plan. The LIC CDA plan vesting occurs when the child turns 21 years of age. This is when the life cover starts and the child becomes the owner of the policy.

  • If the deferment stage is more than 10 years, medical tests are not required. 

  • The policy can be surrendered after 3 years of premium payment. 

  • The death benefit is not applicable if the child dies during the deferment stage.

How Does Children's Deferred Endowment Assurance Plan Work?

LIC CDA endowment vesting at 21 plan works in two stages -

  1. Deferment Stage - 

    • It starts from the date of policy purchase and lasts till the deferred date or till the child turns 21 years. 

    • This is the period when parents start paying premiums for the policy so that the child can benefit from the lump sum maturity proceeds.

    • If the child dies during this period, parents will receive a refund of the total premiums paid. 

  2. Insurance Period - 

    • It starts from the deferred date and continues till the end of the policy term or maturity date. 

    • This is the period during which the child gets life insurance protection from LIC. 

    • If the child dies during this period, parents can claim the sum assured on death along with applicable bonuses. 

    • If the child survives, they will receive the sum assured on maturity along with accrued bonuses. 

Surrendering Children's Deferred Endowment Assurance Plan 

Surrendering this CDA vesting plan at 21 is only possible after paying premiums for 3 years regularly. You will not get the entire sum assured but LIC will pay you a reduced amount called the Guaranteed Surrender Value (GSV). Here are some conditions to surrendering LIC Children's Deferred Endowment Assurance Plan -
