What are Child Plans?

They are those types of plans which aim to create a secured fund for the child’s future which will not be affected by the death of the earning parent. These plans usually have some common points which are mentioned below:

  • Either the child or the parent’s life can be covered under the plan. Usually the parent’s life is covered and the individual needs to have a minor child.
  • If the child’s life is insured, the company keeps a deferment period in the form of some initial years where the company does not extend insurance coverage even though the plan starts. If the child dies in this period the only benefit payable is the premiums paid till date.
  • Also, a child being a minor cannot enjoy the plan’s ownership which rests with the parent till the child turns 18 years of age after which the plan vests in the child’s name and he becomes the policyholder.
  • If the parent is insured, there is an added waiver benefit which is inbuilt within the plan. Under this benefit, in the event of the insured’s death, subsequent premiums are waived off and are paid for by the company and the plan remains intact.

Importance of a child plan

A child insurance plan is an important financial tool in your financial portfolio if you want to provide for your child in his future years. All other types of investments can give you good returns but a child plan is the only investment which will also give an assured return. The uniqueness of the plan lies in the fact that the plan continues even after your death where most of the investments stop. As in case of other investments, if you are not around to save in such investments, the investments will not grow and will stop. On the contrary, in a child plan, premium payments will continue even after your death which will continue building up the corpus. Such a corpus will be realized only when the plan matures and if you have planned in advance; the maturity date can be set to coincide with the child’s important milestones in future like his graduation or higher studies. Your child is the source of your joy and if you do not plan for him his future will be at risk. Death is uncertain and if you are around for your child it will be the best because you would ensure that he gets the best education but what happens when you are not around? Who will take care of your child? In such a scenario, having a child insurance plan will be the best solution since you will not have to worry about financing your child’s future; the insurance plan will do it.

It is best to buy a child plan when you have a minor child and plan with a longer tenure. If the plan is a traditional one, a longer tenure will be required and even if the plan is a unit linked insurance plan, a longer tenure will ensure a higher corpus. So, buy a plan when the child is young. It has two advantages. One, you will have to save a smaller amount over the years and two, the power of compounding will increase the fund generated after the end of the period. What’s more, you can also save taxes both on the amount you contribute as premiums under the plan and also the fund you receive either on death or maturity. The respective Income Tax Act Sections 80C and 10(10D) make it possible.
