Child Insurance Plans

What are Child Insurance Plans?

A child education plan is a specialised policy meant to help parents financially secure their child's future in a structured manner. Parents are required to pay a premium, and in return, they will receive a maturity benefit specifically intended for the child's higher education. Additionally, the policy also includes a life cover element to provide insurance coverage.
The premium payment options can be monthly, semi-annually, annually, or as a one-time payment. In the unfortunate event of one parent's death, the child plan offers triple benefits to the beneficiaries. These benefits include a life insurance cover, payout of the maturity benefit, and the insurer taking over the payment of future insurance premiums. The maturity benefit payout can be received either as a lump sum upon maturity or periodically at different stages of the child's age.
