Importance of Child Insurance Plan

As a parent, you have a strong desire dream to provide the best for your child, that your child should have a quality education and lead a comfortable life. A child plan can help you in accomplishing this dream. The policy offers a focused approach towards saving money in a disciplined manner. The child receives the education which she/he desires with a lump sum payout at maturity or when any unfortunate event happens to you. It also helps you beat inflation and save accordingly. A child insurance plan is important for the following factors:

Use it as collateral for loans:
The child insurance plan gains a surrender value after a few years of premium payment. Once it gains value, the insurance policy can be used as collateral for the loans.
The dual benefit of savings and insurance:
A child insurance plan allows you to save money regularly for your child. At maturity, you get a lump sum to support your child's dreams. With the insurance component of the child plan, your child's future is secured. It implies that even after the death of the life insured (parents), the child's goals are protected as defined in the policy.
Expensive higher education fees:
Not everyone can dream of sending their children abroad for higher education. But when you save with a child insurance plan, you have a dedicated fund ready after years that can be used for the child's education. Suppose you send your child, to a reputable institute in India, to pursue engineering for his higher education. Keeping in mind the current rate of education inflation of 10-12%¹, you would need Rs.30 lakhs for engineering against Rs.20 lakhs today. This makes buying a child plan relevant.
A fund ready for child's marriage:
With a child insurance plan, you can gradually save money for providing a grand wedding of your child. Your savings today may fall short in future. A child insurance plan will help you save for your child's marriage at your dream destination. You may want to arrange a wedding at Udaipur. For a dream wedding in Udaipur today, the estimated cost will be Rs.50 lakhs² with a total of 150 guests. The cost of the same wedding will be Rs.75 lakhs after 5 years considering inflation of 8%.
Peace of Mind:
A child insurance plan gives you immense peace of mind. When you begin the premium payments in favor of the policy, you know that you will have a dedicated fund for your child over the years.
Benefits of Child Insurance Plan
Child insurance plans ensure financial support at every milestone of your child’s life. With this insurance policy you can help your child to fulfill all their goals and ambitions. A child insurance plan provides these benefits:
Better Higher Education:
You can choose the milestone of your child’s life for which you want to build the fund. One of your milestones can be quality higher education. Let’s suppose, your child wants to become a doctor after 16 years. The current cost of MBBS for 5 years is Rs.50 lakhs6. By 2038, you will need approximately Rs.2.5 crores for the same education. So buying child insurance will help you plan the required corpus by a regular investment over the coming years. This will ensure that money will not be a hurdle if your kid pursues the dream to become a doctor. When the time comes the policy will pay to support the admission process.
Rider Benefits:
The primary scope of coverage of the child plan can be enhanced by buying riders. These riders are available at an additional cost and can be included at the policy's inception. Some riders that you can buy under a child insurance plan are Accidental Death Benefit Rider Plus (UIN:109B023V02), Critical Illness Rider (UIN: 109B019V03), Hospital Care Rider (UIN: 109B016V03), Surgical Care Rider (UIN: 109B015V03), Waiver of Premium Rider (UIN: 109B017V02), and Accidental Death and Disability Rider (UIN: 109B018V03).
Support the child even after parents' demise:
Even after the unfortunate demise of the parents, the child insurance plan continues to provide protection to the child. All the future premiums are waived off, and the nominee gets the assured benefit as defined in the policy terms. Apart from the assured benefits, a life cover amount is paid to the nominee upon the death of the life insured. This ensures the child's future is financially secured even upon the demise of the parent (life insured).
Tax Benefit:
The child insurance plan provides you with a tax deduction benefit7 under Section 80C. All the premium paid is eligible for tax deduction up to the maximum limit of Rs.1.5 lakhs. You can also claim a reduction of up to Rs.1lakh on their tuition fees. All the maturity proceeds received as a death benefit or maturity benefit are tax-exempt under Section 10(10D).
Lump-Sum Maturity Benefit:
The insurance policy gives you a lump sum amount on maturity to fund the goals in your child's life- Higher education or planning a grand wedding.

How does a child insurance plan work?
A child insurance plan provides insurance cover along with an opportunity to invest. The insurance coverage starts from the time you pay the premium. The life cover component provides a lump sum to the beneficiary if the life insured (parent) passes away during the policy period. On maturity, the plan offers a lump sum amount along with the bonus added to the policy. The proposer (you) can choose the premium payment, which can be regular premium, single premium, or limited premium payment paid monthly, yearly, or half-yearly. In case of the death of the life insured, all future premiums will be waived.

Let us understand the concept with an example. Assume Rahul purchased ABSLI Child Assured Plan when he was 35 years. The policy term was 20 years, the pay-out period is 3 years, sum assured ₹5 lakhs, annualized premium ₹35,775/- (excluding tax), premium paying term 8 years, payment frequency annual, guaranteed pay-out option: Education Milestone. In the 18th and the 19th years, Rahul received ₹1.8 lakhs per year. ₹1.5 lakhs as 30% of the S.A plus ₹30,000 as 20% of loyalty additions. Then in the 20th year, Rahul was paid ₹2.4 lakhs (₹2 lakhs as 40% of S.A. + ₹40,000 as 20% of loyalty additions.
What is Covered in the Child Insurance Plan?
A child insurance plan is an insurance policy that provides you coverage for :
Maturity Benefit:
The child insurance policy pays the maturity benefit to the life insured at the end of the policy term. The maturity benefit is the amount of assured benefit as per the policy terms. This amount can be used for the child’s education or marriage expenses.
Untimely Death:
The child insurance plan will provide financial protection to the child after the untimely death of the life insured (parent). The policy will continue, and the beneficiary will be given the sum assured after the death. The maturity benefit will be presented at the end of the policy term, and all future premiums will be waived off.

Factors Affecting Child Insurance Premium

These are the factors that affect the child insurance premium:

The age of the proposer and child will affect the premium of the child plan. The closer the maturity date, the higher will be the premium amount. Also, if your age is more, the insurance company will charge more premiums to keep the child's life goals protected.
Child's Life Goals:
The premium of the child plan will be based on the child's life goals for which you take the policy. The premium will be more if you want a comprehensive cover to fulfill goals of education and marriage.
Policy Term:
Policy term also affects the premium under the child plan. If the policy term is shorter, the premium will be higher and vice-versa.
Premium Paying Term:
The premium paying term is the period that denotes the duration for which you choose to pay the premium. One should evaluate for how long she/he wants to take the liability of the premium payments.
The premium payable increases by a nominal amount when you select rider covers. Some of the riders you can include are ABSLI Accidental Death and Disability Rider, ABSLI Critical Illness, ABSLI Surgical Care, ABSLI Hospital Care, ABSLI Waiver of Premium, and ABSLI Accidental Rider.
Sum Assured:
Child insurance premium is directly affected by the amount of sum assured you choose. If the sum assured is higher, the premium will increase.

Child insurance Riders

Riders are additional covers that are taken to increase the scope of cover. These additional covers are available at a nominal premium.

Tips to Choose Child Insurance Plan
Before choosing a child insurance plan, this is what you must keep in mind:
Start Early:
When you buy a child plan early in life, you in a way let the money invested grow over a longer period of time. The interest that you earn over the investment is reinvested into the policy to yield power of compounding.
Check for the Premium Waiver:
Check whether the insurance policy allows for the premium waiver or not. In case of the death of the life insured, all the future premiums are waived off but the policy continues to remain in force & all benefits are provided as per the policy terms.
Choose an Adequate Sum Assured:
Education inflation⁹ marks its growth at a percentage higher than retail inflation. What may seem adequate today can fall short tomorrow. The education prices are going to rise exponentially. This is why you must opt for an assured sum that will ensure all future needs of the child.
Read the Terms and Conditions:
Go through the terms and conditions of the child plan. Pay attention to all inclusions, exclusions, and other clauses. Also, check for the returns you will receive.
