SBI Life offers two insurance plans for children, and you can choose the one that matches your requirements. Let us discuss the features of both the plans in detail.

Smart Champ Insurance by SBI Life

In this plan, the policyholder’s life will be covered throughout the tenure of the policy. The nominee is usually the child whom you want to benefit from the child policy. This plan can be the perfect choice when you want to save money for your children’s educational needs.

  1. Basic Features of SBI Smart Champ Plan

    • After the child reaches the age of 18, the smart benefits will begin to flow every year until the child attains 21 years of age.

    • The child’s educational needs can be easily met with the equal installment amount you receive every year.

    • This protection will be guaranteed even during your absence.

    • In case of the unfortunate event of the policyholder not surviving the policy tenure, the sum assured will be immediately paid to the nominee.

    • There will be no need to pay future premiums to post the policyholder's death, thereby reducing the financial burden on the family members.

    • You can choose to pay the premium in regular installments or a single payment according to your convenience.

    • It is also possible to pay the premium for a limited term by choosing the relevant category.

    • In the event of permanent disability due to an accident, the policyholder will get immediate benefits, and there is no need to pay future premiums for the plan.

    • You can even get a survival benefit with the last installment of the smart benefit.

    • The policyholder is eligible for tax benefits under this plan as per the prevailing laws of the Income Tax Act.

    You can get a share in the profits from the plan, and this is a good option as your money will keep growing in value every year. The company will provide an annual bonus based on the returns generated by the business. This will become part of the guaranteed benefits.

  3. Paid-up Value of Smart Champ Plan 

    The plan will start accumulating a paid-up value after the premium is paid for 2 full years when you choose a tenure of fewer than 10 years. For plans with a term of more than 10 years, the premium has to be paid for 3 full years to be eligible for the paid-up value. 

  4. Surrender Value of Smart Champ Plan 

    After the premium is paid for a few years, the policy attains a certain surrender value depending upon the terms mentioned in the plan. In this way, you can get funding for emergency expenses by taking loans on the policy.

You can even return the policy and get it terminated within a few weeks after buying the plan if you are not satisfied with the terms of the policy.
