The features of the Kotak Child Advantage Plan are:
It is a child insurance plan where the life of your child is insured.
This plan helps your child to save up money for the future.
This plan invests your paid premium in various financial instruments (as per the IRDA regulations.).
In this plan, the money that is saved or the money that is invested in various financial instruments is accumulated in an "Accumulation Account."
This plan also provides the option of two additional riders.
Bonuses that are declared in the Kotak Child Advantage Plan are credited to your accumulation account.
If the parent dies within the policy tenure, the policy continues since the child's life is insured.
This plan provides Life Guardian Benefit rider. With this additional rider, if the parent dies within the policy tenure, then the premiums are paid by the insurance company.
Unfortunately, if the child passes away within the policy tenure, then the insurance company will pay the death benefit to the parents.
If the child survives till the maturity of the policy, then the maturity benefit is paid.
Kotak Accidental Disability Guardian Benefit (ADGB) – If the parents, unfortunately, become disabled due to an accident, the insurance company will pay the remaining premiums.
The benefits of the Kotak Child Advantage Plan are:
Income Tax Benefit – Premiums paid up to Rs.1,50,000 are exempt from your taxable income under Section 80C of the IT Act. The sum assured amount, and any paid bonus received on policy maturity or surrender or also on the insured's death are entirely tax-free for the beneficiary. The benefits are available under Section 10(10D) of the IT Act.
Savings for the Future – The premiums invested in multiple financial instruments are beneficial for the child's future. This money will be helpful for the child for his/her higher educations since college fees nowadays have skyrocketed to lakhs and even higher for abroad colleges. This money can also help her/him to achieve his/her goals and dreams.
Death Benefit –
If the child's parents pass away within the policy tenure, then the policy does not get terminated since the child's life is insured. However, if add on "Life Guardian Benefit rider" was added to the existing policy, then the insurance company would pay the rest of the premiums.
Suppose the child passes away within the policy tenure, and if the child was 18 years old or more, or if the policy was active for 5 years. In that case, the death benefit will be either sum assured or the sum accumulated in the accumulation account. It is higher of the two amounts as on the date the child passed away.
Suppose the death occurs and the child's age was less than 18 years, and if the policy was active for less than 5 years. In that case, the death benefit paid would be either the surrender value at that time or the total of all premiums paid (excluding rider premiums), whichever is higher.
Maturity Benefit – On maturity, the amount paid is higher than the sum assured or accumulated in the "Accumulation Account." This account has all your premiums and your various investments accumulated.
The Benefit of Getting Loans – If your Kotak Child Advantage Plan policy has been in force for more than 3 years, you can get a loan facility from Kotak Life Insurance against your policy.
The advantages of your Kotak Child Advantage Plan are:
Long-Term Investment – This plan promotes long-term investment for your child. The compound interest works better if your investing horizon is long-term. This compounding can help you to generate a large amount of sum at maturity for your child.
Bonuses – You pay premiums after deducting all the policy charges are credited in the Accumulation Account, and that amount is invested as per IRDA regulations. The bonuses declared are also credited to this account.
This money in your Accumulation Account is strategically invested into various financial instruments and assets by investment managers in the insurance company. They ensure that your money grows and compounds and that you get a high rate of return.
Wavier of Premium – This policy provides two optional riders, Kotak Accidental Disability Guardian Benefit (ADGB), and Kotak Life Guardian Benefit (LGB), which help the policy remain in force in case of any unfortunate event that occurs to the parents.
