What are Child Plans?

Plans which provide for the child’s future in the event of the parent’s death by taking care of the financial aspects are called a child plan. These plans are designed with the sole purpose of protecting the child’s future and can have either the parent or the child as the person whose life is insured under the plan.

Some of the basic features of a child plan are:

  • If the child’s life is covered under the plan, there might be a delay in providing the coverage in respect of a few starting years which is called deferment. After the deferment period is over, life cover will become active. If the child dies during the course of the deferment period, only the premiums which were paid are returned.
  • The child becomes the owner of the policy after he crosses 18 years of age and attains maturity. This process is called Vesting
  • If the parent is insured under the plan then in case of the parent’s death, all premiums payable will be waived by the company as per the inbuilt Premium Waiver clause while the plan will continue. The benefits will be paid as and when due .

Why do you need to opt for a Child Plan?

As a parent, the most important responsibility in his life is to fend for the child and save enough and more so as to secure the child’s future. We dream to get the best for our children and as over protective parents, we always end up thinking a lot for our children. However, in today’s world, just thinking is not enough. In fact it was never enough. You would have had to plan, strategize, think, save and also invest so as to earn a handsome return when the child actually needs the money for his higher education. As parents, we have been thinking and dreaming a lot on behalf of our children. Whether he wants to become a doctor, or an engineer or maybe a fashion designer or an architect, etc. also, in today’s day and age the choices are so vast, that even children have a large variety of choice of education and he is also able to choose favourite subject at a very early age. Whether this is is good or not is debatable but yes, it is possible.

So, just saving for your child’s future in a piggy bank will not be possible because inflation eats the money out and actually lower the value of money. So, you need to start the investment today! Whenever you realize the need for investment, is the correct day for you to start. A very popular saying is: “a work begun is half done”. So starting to plan and save and invest prudently for a child is a work half done. As soon as you start your investment to plan for your child, is a good way to gift your child a good investment for the future!

A child plan may or may not be in the child’s name as long as it has been especially designed for the bright future of your child. It needs to be specifically for your child’s needs so that when he is ready for higher education you are ready with the money and not waiting for a period of time for it to mature or increase in value. So investing and timing are the two most considerable factors that need to be kept in mind while investing for your child!
