As a beginner, you would know child insurance plans as insurance-cum-investment products that ensure the security of your child’s future in your absence.

Here are a few points that would help parents clear their doubts around this product:

*All savings are provided by the insurer as per the IRDAI approved insurance plan. Standard T&C Apply

Myth 1: A child insurance plan insures your child’s life

Fact: A child insurance plan is not to secure his life but his future. Instead, a child plan covers the parent’s life and the child is the nominee or beneficiary in case an unforeseen eventuality or the parent’s untimely death occurs. In a child plan, your child is the beneficiary who gets the benefits twice in case of the parent’s death. A child plan is basically designed to help/manage the skyrocketing education costs and the growing needs of your child. It ensures financial support at various stages of your child’s life, such as higher education, marriage, or while setting up a new business.

Myth 2: Your child will bear the burden of premiums post your demise

Fact: In case of parent’s sudden demise, this policy does not terminate and neither does it require the premiums to be paid by the child or the family of the deceased. This is made possible by the ‘waiver of premium’ feature offered by most insurers. As per this rider, the insurer pays a lump-sum amount to the child, post the policyholder’s demise. Also, the remaining premiums of the policy are taken care of by the insurer on the parent’s behalf so as to ensure that the child receives the maturity amount as pre-decided in the policy.

Myth 3: Lump-sum is paid only if your child pursues higher education or gets married

Fact: Your child can claim even if he doesn’t study further or doesn’t wish to get married. A child plan ensures financial security of your child and the maturity amount can be claimed when the policy ends.

Myth 4: The payout can be withdrawn only after the plan ends

Fact: It is not required to wait for the plan to end in order to avail the benefit of the policy. A child plan enables you to withdraw a specific percentage of the fund value once 5 years are over from the date of purchase. However, in the event of sudden demise of the policyholder, the insurance provider discontinues the plan and pays the lump-sum to the child.

Myth 5: Child insurance plan is only an insurance tool

Fact: A child insurance plan along with providing insurance benefits works as an investment instrument. Starting early with a child plan can fetch you reasonable returns. If you timely invest in a unit-linked insurance plan, then your money would get enough time to grow as your child would not require the funds immediately and eventually would receive the funds with a growth benefit.

Remember, it’s never too early to buy a child insurance plan, whether you have become a parent or planning a child. The early you invest, the better returns you fetch.
