What is Kotak Rising Star?

Kotak Rising Star is a child insurance plan offered by Kotak Mahindra Bank. It's designed to help you secure your child's future financially, for various milestones like education and marriage. The plan offers financial security through investment growth, guaranteed death benefit (a lump sum payout in case of the parent's demise), and a monthly income for the family to bridge the financial gap. Even in the unfortunate event of the parent's passing, all future premiums are waived, yet the policy continues till maturity. This ensures a steady flow of funds and a guaranteed yearly increase in the corpus, ultimately providing a planned lump sum amount upon maturity to help your child achieve their long-term goals.

Features of Kotak Rising Star

Here are its key features:

  • Financial Security: The invested amount grows over time, maximizing returns for your child's future needs.

  • Guaranteed Death Benefit: In case of your unfortunate passing, a lump sum amount (Basic Sum Assured) is paid to your child (beneficiary) or appointee (if the child is a minor).

  • Regular Income: Following your demise, the plan provides a monthly income for a period of 3 to 10 years, ensuring a steady flow of funds for your family.

  • Continued Policy: Kotak waives off all future premiums, yet the policy continues till maturity, with guaranteed yearly additions continuing to grow the corpus.

  • Maturity Benefit: Upon policy maturity, the accumulated corpus is paid to your child, helping them achieve their long-term goals.

#The lumpsum benefit is calculated if policyholder invested ₹10000 monthly for 10 years in the fund with a policy term of 20 years. This Point To Point past performance data of last 10 years has been used to illustrate a scenario for the customers benefit. It is assumed that the past 10 years returns would have also been delivered in last 20 years. This is not guaranteed and not in anyway indicative of what the customer may actually get 20 years from now. The investment is subject to market risk and the risk is borne by the policyholder.
