Child Insurance Plans
Benefits of Child Plans
While planning and managing your family’s finances, you devote a reasonable amount of time on your child’s future. Major requirements like child’s higher education need substantial savings, given the rapid rise in education costs. This involves regular investments made over many years so that you can accumulate the required savings. Equally important is the need to secure the child’s future in the event of your untimely absence. The issue then arises that given the paucity of time most parents have, can all financial requirements related to child’s future be met by one financial product? Luckily, life insurance companies offer child plans or children plans that combine financial protection for the child along with a child education plan. If you find the idea of this combination of protection and children education plan attractive, you need to be aware of the key benefits of children plans.
Protection with waiver of premium
A children insurance plan, like other life insurance policies provide life insurance coverage to dependents. In this case, the protection is meant for the child. The life insurance amount from the child plan can be used to meet the immediate and regular needs besides meeting future needs of the child in the event of the untimely demise of the insured parent.
Providing for immediate needs
To provide for the child’s regular needs, the life insurance coverage from children plans provide the money to help the family meet regular expenses such as those related to school education.
Addressing future needs
A children future plan also provides money for higher education. In case of the untimely demise of the insured parent, many child plans have what is a called premium waiver feature that ensures that the child plan remains in force for the remaining part of the policy term. The policy premium is paid by the life insurance company. The money invested so far, remains invested till the end of the policy term and then money is paid to the child which can take care of higher education expenses.
Regular investment for child’s higher education
A children’s plan works equally well if the unfortunate event doesn’t take place. You invest regularly throughout the term thanks to your premium payments. If you opt for a child investment plan in the unit linked insurance plan (ULIP) category where a portion of the premium is invested in buying units of a fund, money growth may well be high. This typically takes place when you invest in ULIP equity funds. Over the long tenure of the ULIP, the value of the units grow well since equity investments typically provide high returns over 8-10 years, or more. As you near the time when you need to use the money, you can move the money to a lower risk ULIP fund and ensure that the gains that you have made over time are secured. The movement of your money to another ULIP fund is typically done free of cost.
This is the icing on the cake. Besides the protection benefits and helping you save substantial amounts, a children education plan helps you save tax. You are not only eligible for annual deduction from your total income of upto Rs 1.5 lakhs under Section 80C of the Income-tax Act, 1961, for premiums paid for child plans but you also benefit from tax free maturity proceeds under Section 10(10D) of the Income-tax Act, 1961, subject to fulfilment of the terms and conditions stated therein. Like every parent, if you dream big for your child’s future, you must do the small things right. This means a plan to have financial protection in place in case of the unfortunate event and ample savings for child’s future needs if things stay on course.
What Is Child Education Plan?
We all know how higher education costs have been rising in India. For young parents this is a great worry. How does one accumulate ample savings in order to meet the high education costs in the future? Help is at hand if one considers child education plans offered by life insurance companies. A child education plan or children education plan helps you save ample amounts through the regular premiums paid for this purpose. Typically, in a children education plan, a portion of the premium is earmarked for providing financial protection to the child. The other portion is used to invest the money so that it grows well during the long term of the children’s plan. These two aspects of a children plan ensures that the there is adequate provision for a child’s higher education in case of unfortunate event as when the term of the child education plan is over. Another important aspect of child education plan is you get tax benefits both for premium paid up to Rs 1.5 lakhs under Section 80C of the Income-tax Act, 1961, and for maturity proceeds under Section 10(10D) of the Income-tax Act, 1961, subject to fulfilment of the terms and conditions stated therein. This ensures that the growth of the money under a child education plan is tax-efficient as well.
Why Do You Need A Child Education Plan?
As a young parent it is very difficult for you to put a finger on what exactly will be the cost of your child’s higher education. Therefore, it is important for you to have ample savings that will easily cover the costs.

It is here that a child education plan, offered by life insurance companies, comes to your help.

This actually is of great help since it helps you achieve this big goal in small steps of regular investments through your premiums for the child plan.
Build your wealth by staying invested

Many people find it difficult to inculcate a sense of discipline when it comes to investments. Thanks to the need for regular premium payment in a child education plan, you effortlessly get to establish a discipline for regular investments. This not only helps you get started investing for your child’s higher education but also helps you increase your investments as your income goes up. Child education plan or childrens plan is a great tool to save money for your child’s higher education. Remember, this is one stage in your financial life where you will never want to fall short of money.

Having a child’s insurance plan can help with the costs of educating your child.
There are simple things like extracurricular activities that your child may partake in. They may be budding sportsmen and women or young Picassos. You want your child to dream big and achieve those dreams. Do not let money be a hindrance to your child pursuing their passions. A child insurance policy will allow you to create a fund that your children can draw on for their benefit.
- Creating a Corpus
Your child will one day be married. On such a joyous occasion you will want the celebrations to be full-fledged. This is not a situation where you want to skimp on spending. It would be ideal if you were to sponsor all aspects of the ceremonies. If you have a daughter you must cover expenses like fine jewellery and an exquisite bridal trousseau. If you have a son you may want to contribute toward the nuptials. You do not want to find yourself in a situation where you are unable to afford your own child’s wedding. This is truly a time of elation for your child. Do not let a lack of money get in the way of your child’s happiness.

- Responsible Young Ones
The best thing that you can do for your child is to set a great example yourself. Children learn by example. Apart from Superman, Spider-Man, Batman, Wonder Woman and other superheroes, children idolise their parents. Children learn and emulate the behaviours they see in their parents, and it is important that we remember that they are impressionable young human beings.
The decisions you make as parents will have a great impact on the kind of people your children will turn out to be. It is common knowledge that you cannot be rash and reckless when it comes to your children. Buying an insurance plan for your child is a very sound decision. When children see you, their parents, using your good judgement, they too will make good decisions in the future.
