A Child Insurance plan is one such way that ensures your child’s future safety and ensures that they do not struggle financially even when you are no more around to look after them.

What is Child Insurance Plan?

A child insurance plan is an investment plus insurance plan offered by many companies for the safety of your child’s future dreams and goals. It offers life cover and provides flexible playouts during all the crucial steps in your child’s life. A child insurance plan is one of the best ways to save a good amount of money with regular investments for your child’s future.

Types of Child Insurance Plans

Broadly there are 3 types of Child insurance plans available in India

  1. Child ULIP

    Child ULIP comes with 3 pronged advantages broadly. They are as follows:

    • High insurance coverage

    • Disciplined investments

    • Participation inequity market

    It means that

    • Sum assured is provided to the nominee child on the death of the parent or legal guardian

    • Future premium is waived off after the demise of the parent

    • Maturity value is paid during the time of maturity.

    Child ULIP ensures that your child’s future dreams are fulfilled with or without you

  2. Unit Linked Insurance Plans

    The payouts at the time of maturity of ULIPs are determined by the market. This is a great plan for long tenures, say, more than 10-15 years. Companies provide options between different investment funds, allowing you to receive more money than you invested. There are some plans under ULIPs where profits are directly transferred from equity to debt instruments

  3. Traditional Endowment Plans

    These are simple plans that provide stable returns in the form of bonuses over the sum assured. Generally, under Traditional Endowment Plans, bonuses are paid from the 2nd year onwards.

  4. Single-Premium Child Plan

    The policyholder pays a lump sum amount in the form of a single premium for the entire policy term and stays worry-free from remembering the due dates of premium payment. You’ll not have to come across any hassles of arranging finances for the premium payment. Some insurance providers additionally offer appealing discounts or reduce the premium on child plans.

  5. Regular Premium Child Plan

    Unlike a single premium child education plan, a regular premium child policy offers you flexibility on payment of premium. You can pay the premium monthly, quarterly, half-yearly, or yearly.
