One of the biggest goals of your life is to make sure that you earn enough to give your child a bright and rewarding future. Fortunately, there are now different types of products available in India to help you in this endeavour. One of the most popular options is investing in a child insurance plan.

The plans combine life insurance with investment, making it a smart choice for parents worried about the future of their children.
However, what are these plans? What are its benefits?

What is a Child Insurance Plan?

Most child insurance plans are traditional participating insurance plans. In these plans, you receive regular dividends in the form of bonuses while also receiving life cover. The plans are generally for a fixed duration, and bonus payments often start before the maturity. On maturity, the policyholder will receive all the accrued bonuses along with terminal bonuses if any.

In the unfortunate event of the death of the policyholder (parent), the nominee (child) will receive the death benefit, and the policy will continue to remain valid until the pre-fixed term. However, there will be no need to pay any premiums, and the assured payouts and bonuses will continue until maturity.

Benefits of Child Insurance Plan

Some of the most significant advantages of a child insurance plan are as follows-

1.Life Cover

The biggest benefit of a child insurance plan is the life cover. The nominee of the policy will receive the death benefit in case of your demise within the policy tenure.

2.Regular Dividends/Bonuses

Many of the plans also declare reversionary bonuses which are added to the policy. On maturity, these accrued bonuses are paid to the policyholder.

3.Assured Payout

Some plans also come with the assured payout feature where the policyholder will start receiving assured payouts from the 5th year of when the premium payment term is over. You get to choose the percentage of the guaranteed sum that you'd like to receive as an assured payout. 

4.Maturity Benefit

Once the policy matures, the policyholder receives the accrued bonuses as well as other bonuses if any. Some policies also allow you to take a loan against the surrender value of the policy.
