Child Insurance plan could be traditional plan which is a long-term tenure plan where premium is paid for longer or limited period. Upon maturity, a pre-determined fixed amount will be paid to the child. Or in case of death of policy holder, the child will get the death benefits instantly and the policy will continue till maturity because of ‘Premium Waiver’ rider. This feature is a unique feature of child insurance plan that allows the plan to continue for the benefit of the child in case of untimely death of parents, who were actually the policy holders. Insurance company continues the policy by paying the premium and the maturity benefit is handed to the child in due time. The amount of death benefit will also be paid to the nominee immediately in case of death of policy holder.
Another type of child insurance plan is ‘unit-linked’, where the premium paid is invested in the fund in the market and the benefits will grow based on the market growth. In case of maturity of the plan or pre-matured death of the policy holder, the insured person will get the fund value as the benefit. In either of the plans, it is meant for the welfare of the child.
