In this article, we are discussing three HDFC insurance plans for children, which shall help you in achieving your financial goals.

HDFC Life Click 2 Wealth

It is a unit-linked plan that provides you with three plan options to choose from depending on your investment needs:

  1. Invest Plus

    This option provides life coverage and takes care of your investment requirements by providing accrued fund value when the policy matures.

  2. Premium Waiver

    This is an option that takes care of all your financial responsibilities in your absence. In the event of your unfortunate death, all future premiums shall be waived, and it shall be ensured that your fund does not stop growing so that your dependents continue to build the corpus on your behalf for the dreams you have nurtured for your beloved ones. 

  3. Golden Years Benefit

    Retirement marks the beginning of one’s life where an individual prefers spending quality time with loved ones. This plan option provides you with the solution to build a corpus while also having life cover for the rest of your life (till 99 years of age). 

    In addition, you may choose systematic withdrawals to generate regular income for your retirement stage from your accrued fund.

    The plan option, once chosen, cannot be altered throughout the policy term, and charges will vary as per the plan option selected. However, you may now decide how you want to manage your investment portfolio from 10 different fund options.

  • The loan amount is available subject to a maximum of 80% of the surrender value.
  • The interest rate applicable is 14% p.a.

In Conclusion

If you are looking for a plan that is required to fund your child's future, HDFC Life Click 2 Wealth and YoungStar-Udaan are better suited for you from amongst the above explained three HDFC Insurance Plans for Children. 

While these plans are expected to provide you with lower returns than an index fund or an equity mutual fund, they come with an added death cover, which will provide your near and dear ones with financial stability.

FAQ's

  • Q. What are top-up premiums?

    Ans: A top-up facility allows the policyholder to increase the sum assured in return for an additional premium. The policyholder may opt to pay top-up premiums in the above plans subject to certain conditions.
  • Q. Do the above plans qualify for income tax benefits?

    Ans: Yes. All the above plans qualify for the deduction under Section 80C of the Income Tax Act, 1961.
  • Q. Are the investments in the above plan options safe?

    Ans: Yes. The investments, however, would be subject to market risks, and the unit prices of the funds may rise or fall, reflecting changes in the market scenario. You may also opt for a systematic transfer plan which gives you the benefits of cost averaging and avoiding the market risk associated with lump-sum investing.
  • Q. What if I delay the payment of the premium?

    Ans: A grace period of 30 days is provided after the premium due date, during which the policy is considered to be in force with the risk cover. Therefore, you can comfortably pay your premium during this period.
  • Q. Can I revive a lapsed insurance policy?

    Ans: Yes. You can revive a lapsed insurance policy within the revival period of 5 years from the date of the first unpaid premium, subject to terms and conditions applicable from time to time.
