  • Child plans serve the dual role of helpful investment tools and insurance products.
  • Insurance component: In case of death of the insured parent, the insurance company funds the premiums such that the planned corpus is accumulated and the child’s future is secured
  • Investment Component: Child insurance plans create a fund of the desired amount to be drawn upon at regular intervals to cater to multiple needs such as education, marriage, etc.

Starting Early is the Right Way

Hypothetically speaking, if you are bringing up a 5-year-old; 10-15 years later, education costs like the course and hostel fees, traveling expenses, etc. will be much higher considering the average inflation rate. Given this, you may want to consider an adequate suitable child plan that will provide for such expenditure in the future. The same rings true for your child’s marriage expenses, costs of setting up a home, financing a startup, day-to-day future expenses till his/her earnings start, etc.

Most child plans provide smart maturity benefits by the time your child turns 18. By starting on a plan early, payouts can be made available at important milestones to fund urgent financial requirements.
