As your child grows up, you tend to get more and more worried thinking about its future. Have you ever tried to understand the reason behind it?

A number of things come to your mind when you start speculating on the factors that cause your worries concerning your child’s future. But the most important concern that almost all parents have is about the financial security of their child. 

Future financial security is indeed a matter of great concern among middle-class Indian parents. This concern stems not only from the thought of an uncertain future lying ahead, but also the skyrocketing cost of education has a major contribution to it. 

Here, we will show you how investing in a child insurance plan can help you secure your child’s future financially.

LIC’s Komal Jeevan Plan is a child insurance plan that offers guaranteed money back facility. As soon as your child turns 18 years, the insurer pays back the premiums periodically, to the beneficiary, in every two years.  In the unfortunate event of the child’s death during the policy tenure, the sum assured along with the guaranteed additions are paid out and the policy terminates.

The following are the key features of this LIC Child Plan .

  • No medical Examination is required to avail this policy.
  • Either the parent(s) or the grandparent(s) of the child can purchase this policy.
  • Guaranteed Terminal Bonus is payable on maturity or on death.
  • A guaranteed sum of Rs. 75 per thousand Sum Assured is added at the end of each policy year.
  • A premium waiver rider can be taken additionally with this plan.
  • Term Rider is also available with this plan.
    • After the completion of the 2nd policy year or from the 7th birthday of the child (whichever is later), risk starts to commence.
    • The policyholder has to pay premiums regularly till the child is 17 years old.
