In the wake of rising education costs and sky-rocketing inflation, it is a prudent decision to invest in a Child Plan, which will provide your child with all the financial assistance, whenever he/she needs it the most. Kotak Mahindra Old Mutual Life offers a unit-linked child plan, which serves as the perfect saviour for combating these mounting education expenditures. Further, in case you are not around, it helps in securing your child’s future by providing a lump sum amount for supporting the immediate requirements, waiving off the future premiums, so that the policy can continue, and again granting a lump sum amount when the policy comes to an end for funding your child’s education and other milestones of life.
Parenthood evokes feelings of happiness and joy, but it also brings with it a sense of responsibility, about giving your offspring the best of everything, and simultaneously ensuring that your child can continue going to school, even in your absence. Child plans help you to create a corpus over a period of time and provide you with a lump sum at the end of the term, so that this amount can come handy, once your child is all braced up to pursue higher education or take up a career of his/her choice. They also constitute a protection element, whereby your child is given financial assistance, if you pass away during the term of the policy.
Maturity Benefit: Policy Maturity is the time when you receive the corpus which you have created over the years, so that you can easily fund your child’s education, career, or fulfil any other dream your child always wanted to pursue. At the time of maturity, you are granted with the full Fund Value, which you can avail in any of the three following ways:
Death Benefit: In the unfortunate event of the demise of the parent, the beneficiary is entitled to receive a Death Benefit, provided all the premiums have been paid in full. The Death Benefit is equal to the Basic Sum Assured plus Fund Value, subject to a minimum of 105% of total premiums paid up to the time of death.
