What is a Child Insurance Plan?

Child insurance plans are investment cum insurance plans offered by insurance companies and are similar as endowment and ULIP plans. Although, these plans have one difference i.e. Unlike ULIP and endowment plans, the parents need to invest in the child plan right from the time the child is born. Unlike child insurance plan the insured person can withdraw the saved amount once the child reaches to his/her adulthood.

How Much Insurance is Offered Under the Child Plan?

 In order to ensure the financial future of the child as sum assured in case of premature demise of the earning parents, the plan has its own inbuilt component. The minimum coverage that can be selected under this plan is: Sum Assured= term* Annual premium/2. But, unfortunately in most instances this sum assured is inadequate. According to the insurance experts, it is important to buy life coverage of least 7-10 times of the yearly income of the salaried parents.

One of the benefits of these policies is that the child is provided with adequate funds in case if the working parent meet with any eventuality or demises. So, it is advisable that an individual should check on many different options in order to avail the maximum coverage.

About the Investments

Like endowment and ULIP plan, in child insurance plan a part of the premium paid goes towards paying the life coverage and the rest amount in invested in various investment instruments like equity, debt, etc. however, the portion deducted towards investment is very small, as the insurer deducts the premium allocation charge beforehand.

Resulting this, a very few part of the premium is invested during the initial years of the policy. Moreover, if the insured choose an option for any additional features provided by the insurance company like switching option or waiver of premium then the charges for the same is also deducted from the invested amount. So, initially these plans offer very low return and even if the insured end the plan without completing the tenure of the policy he/she might end up facing a loss.

What Aspects that are Covered under Child Insurance Plan?

A child insurance plan secures the educational future of the children. The child education plan offers the dual benefit of saving come protection. The plan is designed to offer financial security to the child so that their education may not hindered in the case of any unfortunate event in future. Child education plan provides 10 times more sum assured amount with the minimum premium payment option. The lump-sum amount paid on child education plan can be further used for education expenditure.

Secondly, during the tenure of child plan one can also avail the option of withdrawing money. It can be used for any medical purpose or for medical treatment of the children in case if they get ill. These partial withdrawals can be made very conveniently in the case of the child is hospitalized for any minor or serious medical condition.

One of the most important aspects of future planning is to plan for uncertainties. As life is uncertain, the parents should make sure that the child should not have a financial crisis in case of any eventuality. The insurance company offers a premium waiver during the tenure of the policy of a child plan if the insured passes away. Another advantage of having a child plan is that it protects the income of your children if they start earning at a very young age.

By evaluating the needs, one can invest in these plans, so that they can collect a sufficient corpus to provide a financial security to the child’s future. With a right approach and proper guidance one can zero in on the policy that provides that maximum coverage in an economical way.
