Bharti AXA Life Insurance Company offers its customers a wide range of insurance plans in different categories to meet their requirements. Whether the requirement is for protection or for savings or for retirement, the company has a solution for every need. The child plans offered by the company are designed for the welfare of a child even in the absence of a parent.
The plans designed for the child generally do not cover the child’s life. The life covered is of the parent with a minor child. Underwriting is done on the parent’s life while the child’s details are given in the policy
Some common aspects of these plans include:
There is a ‘deferment period’ in some child plans. Deferment is applied if the child’s life is insured. Under the clause, risk coverage will commence after the completion of some years. If the child dies during this period, the aggregate premiums paid till death is returned since life cover is not available during that period.
If the child is insured, he will become the policyholder when he attains 18 years. The process of reverting the ownership to the child is called Vesting.
If the parent is insured and he dies, there will be no need to pay future premiums. It will be covered by the insurance company as per the provisions of the inbuilt waiver of premium benefit.
Bharti AXA Life Insurance Company offers child plans that are packed with different benefits to provide complete future protection to the child. Let us understand these plans in detail:

Planning for your child’s future if you have a child is a very important aspect of your future planning. A child plan takes care of this planning and is the complete solution for planning your child’s future. Essentially, this type of insurance plan should be taken for a longer tenure. Here are some reasons why.
Your child would require more financial help in the later stages of his life when he seeks admission into a good college or when he wants to pursue a specialized post-graduate education.
Even planning for your child’s marriage would require substantial funds.
When taken for a longer tenure, the plan involves paying a small premium every year which goes towards building a substantial corpus.
On maturity, the resultant fund is sufficient enough to provide for huge expenses which would require a lump sum amount.
Even if the parent dies, the fund creation does not go to waste because of the inbuilt rider clause. The company keeps on crediting the required premium in the policy and the fund at the end of the tenure comes out to be the same as was originally planned. This is perhaps the best feature of Bharti AXA child plans because in case of other investments, the savings stop when the investor dies. By promising continuity, the child plan helps in maintaining the corpus which the parent had initially planned for.
