Why Should You Choose LIC Child Plans?

The LIC child plans offer various benefits to your child as well as your family. You should choose LIC child plans because of the following reasons:

  1. Financial Protection: Although your earnings offer your child all of life’s stability and comfort, a child insurance plan from LIC will serve as a safety net in case financial support is interrupted due to any reason. This amount of money, which you specify when you purchase the policy, can cover your child’s requirements as they grow.
  1. Support You In Your Child’s Fees: LIC child plans can assist you in paying your child’s fees. In case you are no more, these insurance plans pay a specific percentage of the sum assured.

Moreover, there will also be periodic annual payouts until the end of the policy term. These amounts will be helpful to take care of the school expenses in the absence of the breadwinner.

  1. Tax Benefits: As child plans are life insurance plans, they are eligible for tax benefits. As per Section 80 C of the Income Tax Act, 1961, you can claim up to 1.5 lakh in deductions for your child’s insurance premiums.
  1. Helps In Your Child’s Higher Education: Getting your child a higher education can be really expensive. If you plan well at an early age of the child and purchase a LIC child plan, you will be able to meet your child’s higher educational requirements in time.

In case the breadwinner expires in the mid of the higher studies, LIC doesn’t terminate the plan. Instead, the company continues to pay for the future premiums for your child.

  1. Helps In Your Child’s Wedding: LIC child plans can also be helpful in carrying out expenses for your child’s wedding. When your child reaches a marriageable age, these plans may provide a lump sum amount so that your dream of the perfect wedding for your child can become true.

Functioning Of LIC Child Plans

In order to understand how LIC child plans work, we need to take a plan and learn its functioning. Let’s take LIC’s New Children’s Money Back plan!

Suppose we have Mr. and Mrs. Sinha, parents of 1-year-old Rakesh. They are both financially equipped and decided to opt for having LIC’s New Children’s Money Back plan. 

They choose a basic sum assured of Rs. 15 lakhs, for which they have to pay a premium of Rs. 25,000 per year. They pay the premium amount regularly in order to avoid any policy lapse.

What Will Happen If Rakesh Survives?

When Rakesh reaches the age of 18, he will receive 20% as a part of the survival benefit. This means he will receive Rs. 3 lakhs. When he will turn 20 and 22 years, he will get additional survival benefits of Rs. 3 lakhs each. When he will turn 25, he will receive 40% of the sum assured as maturity benefit, i. e. Rs. 6 lakhs. Therefore, he will receive the following amounts if he survives the policy term:

Age Of RakeshBenefits He Will Receive
At 1820% Of SA (Rs. 3 Lakhs)
At 2020% Of SA (Rs. 3 Lakhs)
At 2220% Of SA (Rs. 3 Lakhs)
At 2540% Of SA (Rs. 6 Lakhs)
Total BenefitRs. 15 Lakhs + Any Additional Benefit

What Will Happen If Rakesh Dies?

If Rakesh dies prematurely within the policy period, the parents will receive a death benefit if the death occurs after the risk period has begun. The premiums paid will be refunded in the event of death prior to the start of the risk period.
