It is very well known that the costs of education, especially of higher education in India are on a rise. The factor of inflation plays a huge role here and after some years, the costs may further add to your financial burden if due planning is not done. If your child decides to opt for an education abroad, the added costs will be immense and will have a direct impact on your financial resources. In addition to the curricular costs, there are additional costs involved and a mere savings-plan does not suffice. Moreover, tomorrow your child may decide to pursue a hobby or any sports activity and may require extra support mechanism for it. This obviously requires extra expenditure and you must be in a position to cover the expenses. As a parent, you would never like any financial woes to hamper your childâ€™s dreams. Moreover, in the highly competitive world of today, financial edge means everything. Therefore, having the right kind of an insurance plan for your child becomes very important.
Insurance companies today offer diverse options from which you can choose as per your requirements. Generally speaking, a child's plan comes with death benefit as well as maturity benefits. The plan entitles the subscriber's nominee (in this case, he subscriber's child) to corpus proceeds (sum assured) and waiver/coverage of remaining premiums, in the event of the subscriber's demise. If the subscriber survives the policy term, the maturity proceeds are payable to her/him by the insurer. Furthermore, the payable premiums enjoy tax exemption under the sections of Income Tax Act. Therefore, a child plan is wholly beneficial and offers guaranteed coverage together with options to secure investments to meet any extra costs that may be required to fulfill your child's educational needs.
Generally, the child plans come with flexible terms and conditions vis-a-vis the payout options and investment plans. The general entry age is 18-21 years and some plans also offer multiple modes of paying the premium for the convenience of the subscriber.
