Max Life Child Plans

Give Your Child the Best Education with Child Plans

Your child's education is important for his or her career and you need to plan for it as early as possible. To find out the future value of your child's education keeping inflation in mind, it is important to either appoint a financial planner or make use of online tools. Once you have determined the future value of your child's education, you need to know how much you should invest on a monthly or annual basis to build the required corpus for his or her education.

This is where Max Life Child Plans comes into the picture. They have two child plans, namely Max Life Future Genius Education Plan and Max Life Shiksha Plus Super with flexibility in investment options as well as premium payment options. Max Life can guide you regarding which child plan would be your best choice after understanding your requirements. In the unfortunate event of your death, all future premiums are waived and the education dreams of your child will be fulfilled on time.
