Planning for the child’s future with a child plan

We need different products for different needs. While pension plans provide the much needed corpus for our retirement, unit linked plans provide us with the facility of capital appreciation for creating wealth. Term insurance plans take care of the income protection needs and a child insurance plan takes care of our planning for our children. Every form of insurance serves a different purpose and a child plan serves the most important purpose of all – planning for our child’s future. A child plan will take care of the financial requirement which your child will face when he or she decides to pursue a higher education or gets admitted in a college.

Some important aspects of the child plan

A child plan has several unique features which differentiate it from other types of insurance plans. Let us see the different aspects of the plan:

  • This plan can be bought only by the person who has a minor child. As such, the child’s documents are also required when buying the plan as the proof of the child’s identity.
  • Most child plans provide coverage on the life of the parent while the child is the beneficiary. However, there are certain child plans in the market which actually cover the life of the child. As such, the child is called the person insured or the life insured while the parent who pays the premium is called the policyholder
  • If the child is covered, the life cover does not start along with the plan when the policy is issued. There is a deferment period or a waiting period whereby the company does not cover the death risk inherent in the child’s life. During the deferment period death of the insured child would include the return of premiums since the Sum Assured is not active during that time.
  • When the child is the life insured, he cannot be the policyholder of his own policy because he is a minor. When the child reaches maturity on achieving 18 years, he becomes a major and can become the policyholder of the policy. In that situation, on the policy anniversary which follows the child’s 18th birthday the policy’s ownership status changes hands and reverts in the name of the child. The child then becomes the policyholder and can make a fresh nomination in the policy where no nominee was required when the parent was the policyholder.
  • The waiver of premium rider is in built within the plan and is not required to be taken as an addition. The benefit of the rider is that the premiums and subsequently the insurance plan will continue even after the death of the policyholder (parent). The premium paying responsibility is transferred to the insurance company which pays the premiums and keeps the policy running. When the policyholder dies, the death benefit is paid which the child can utilize for his immediate requirements. When the plan matures on the stipulated date, another benefit called the maturity benefit is paid which can be used by the child at that time for admission to a college or a post-graduate degree.

What documents are required to buy the plan?

For buying the child plan, the following documents need to be submitted to the insurance company:

  • Your identity proof which can be a copy of your passport, driving license, PAN card, Voter’s ID card, etc.
  • Your address proof which can be any one among the passport, driving license, electricity or phone bill, etc.
  • Your date of birth proof like the passport, driving license, PAN card, etc.
  • The date of birth proof of the child like his birth certificate
  • Passport sized photographs of both you and your child
