What are Child Plans?

Child plans are insurance plans offered by insurers to provide for the welfare of an individual’s child even if the individual is not around. A child plan is developed on the concept of providing financial support to the family for the child’s future if the parents meet with an unfortunate death. Insurance plans designed for the child do not usually insure the child. The life insured under these plans are the parent who has a minor child to provide for. The underwriting is done on the life of the parent and the details of the child are to be provided in the policy.

Child plans have some common features which are given below:

  • There is a concept of ‘deferment’ in some of the child plans. Deferment means postponement and is usually applied if the child is the person insured. Under the deferment clause, the risk coverage under the plan starts after the expiry of a couple of years. In case the child dies during the deferment period, the premiums paid till the date of death are returned because the life cover is not applicable during that period.

  • Another concept is ‘Vesting’ which means the age of the child when the policy vests in the name of the child and he becomes the policyholder. The Vesting age is usually 18 years when the child attains majority and becomes the policyholder of the plan.

  • There is an inbuilt Waiver of Premium Rider in most of the child plans. The rider states that if the parent who is the policyholder and life insured under the plan dies during the tenure of the plan, all future premiums payable under the plan will be waived and paid for by the company. The plan will continue unaffected and the benefits as promised under the plan will accrue as and when they fall due.

Why Child Plans?

Child Insurance plans have become very important because they specifically provide for one’s child’s future even in one’s absence. The inbuilt premium waiver rider ensures that the plan continues even after the parent’s death and the benefits accrue and when they are payable so that the benefits can be utilized for the purpose for which it was initially planned, i.e. for the child’s future. For example, an individual with a child currently aged 5 years buys a 20 year child plan which promises money backs at the 15th, 17th and 20th policy anniversary. The policyholder has planned the money back periods to coincide with the child’s educational milestones and would receive the funds when the child reaches 20 years, 22 years and 25 years. The funds will be utilized to take care of the child’s higher education. If the insured dies, the plan will not be terminated. Future premiums will be paid by the company and the money-backs will be paid as and when promised. Thus, the money will be utilized only for the child’s education which was the actual rationale for buying the plan.

A unit linked child insurance plan which protects the child’s future against untimely death of the parent by providing financial assistance. The features and benefits of the plan are as follows:

  • Premiums under the plan are required to be paid for the entire duration of the plan.

  • The premiums paid net of applicable charges can be invested in a choice of four funds available with the company at the discretion of the policyholder. The funds are Equity 1 Fund, Balanced 1 Fund, Debt 1 Fund and Value Fund

  • On maturity, the available Fund Value is paid to the policyholder which can be taken either in lump sum on maturity or in instalments over a period of 5 years post maturity under the Settlement Option.

Good Plan
The perfect policy which i buy from IndiaFirst life insurance and the product is child plan. Policy coverage is 90% and the premiums are low ~15 K thrice a year. The claims are high around 36 L after policy ends. The claiming process is easily done due to fast service provided by the executives and staff members. Good investment and tax saving. I like the policy plan.
