LIC Child Career Plan offered by the LIC of India is designed with a primary objective to create a corpus for the child's future needs, such as education, higher studies, or starting a business, ensuring that financial resources are available at the right time. The company, however no longer sell the LIC Child Career Plan as it was withdrawn by the company.
Let us now discuss the features and benefits of this child plan in more detail.
The plan provides risk cover on the child's life during the policy's tenure and during the extended term of 7 years post-maturity.
If the child outlives the entire policy tenure, then he/she is provided with 105% of the sum assured.
The maturity benefit of the policy is 15% of the sum assured, including the final additional bonus.
It comes with an auto cover period if premiums have been paid for 2 years in full. It activates when a parent misses a premium payment. During the auto cover period, the life cover on the child remains active for two years from the date of the first unpaid premium.
The plan provides the premium waiver rider. If premium paying parents opt for it, then on their death all the pending premiums will be waived off but the policy will continue.
In the event of the unfortunate demise of the life insured during the policy's tenure, the beneficiary will receive the sum assured plus bonus. If the child, i.e., the life assured, dies before risk commencement, then the policy's beneficiary will receive the premium paid until death with 3% interest compounded annually.
Five years before the policy expiration date , the child receives 30% of the sum assured including the vested simple reversionary bonus. The remaining sum is paid in four installments in the last 4 years, each installment equal to 15% of the sum assured.
On the maturity of the policy, the insured, i.e., the child receives an additional 15 % of the sum assured along with the final additional bonus.
LIC Child Career Plan allows policyholders to enhance the coverage by adding riders such as accidental death and disability benefit riders, which provide additional financial protection in case of unforeseen events.
The premium paid up to Rs 1,50,000 is exempt from tax deduction under section 80C of the Income Tax Act.
“Tax benefit is subject to changes in tax laws. Standard T&C apply.”
Here, let us include a case study to explain how the Plan Works:
Miss Dipanjali took LIC’s Child Career plan for her newborn baby. She chose the policy tenure of 25 years and the premium payment tenure of 6 years. Miss Dipanjali opted for a sum assured of Rs1,00,000, and the monthly premium paid by her is Rs 10,128. The extended tenure of the policy is 7 years.
If the parent dies during the policy term, then the future premiums will be waived off. Since the life cover is on the child, the death benefit is payable only on the death of the child.
If the child survives, he/she gets the following –
At the end of the 20th year of the policy term – 30% of Rs. 1,00,000 – Rs. 30,000 + Simple reversionary bonus
At the end of the 21st year of the policy term – 15% of Rs. 1,00,000 – Rs. 15,000
