Child Insurance Plans

These are plans of various types that go in to secure a child’s financial security and in to making sure that financial worries do not hamper her education. These long-term savings/investment plans are an amalgamation of both insurance and investment.

It sounds ugly, but there might arise a situation in which you pass away and your child becomes dependant on your financial foresight.

Though child insurance plans are varied in nature, what they all have in common is that in case of your unfortunate demise, your ward shall be paid a lump sum payment (death benefit), and the insurer continues to deposit money on your  behalf in your ward’s account under the ”waiver of premium benefit”.

These Child Plans are of The Following Two Types:

Traditional Child Plan

These are “safer” and more secure, with guaranteed maturity returns. This is the plan for you if you wish to invest in low-risk funds, such as, government securities and corporate.

Unit-Linked Plans (ULIPs)

ULIPs are for you if you do not mind a bit of risk and gambling. These plans yield higher returns, but make a note that ULIPs are beneficial in the long run only. Any money you invest in a ULIP goes into the debt and equity market and therefore these are high-risk, high-returns financial instruments.

As is implicit, you need someone to act as your child’s “guardian” in these plans. Goes without saying, choose the guardian wisely and with care. It is your child’s future at stake here.
