    Child Savings Plan: Smart Investment | PNB MetLife


    3 Reasons Why a Child Savings Plan is a Smart Investment

    Last Updated On 10-07-2018

    Becoming a parent is one of the greatest joys you can experience. However, this happiness comes with its share of responsibilities – financial care being the most important among them. The ever-rising costs and inflation rate don’t exactly help in easing situations, though. The smart thing for new parents to do would be to start investing in a child saving plan early, preferably as soon as your baby is born.

    A secure financial future is the best gift that you could give to your child, second only to your love and care. One of the ways of doing this is to invest in a child saving plan. This way you are ensuring that your child can realize their dreams when they grow up.

    A child saving plan offers the best of both worlds, insurance as well as investment. It can take care of your child even when you are not around. When a child policy matures or ends, you receive a lump sum amount which are most of the time accompanied by structured payouts. These provide a substantial contribution for your child’s higher education or any expenses that need to be taken care of.

    Like any other investment, there are many variations of a child saving plan. There are several insurance benefits, short-term as well as long-term, of investing in a child saving plan. Let’s look at 3 reasons why a child saving plan is a sensible and practical investment.

    Reduce Your Financial Burden

    Think about it. As a provider of your family, you have many responsibilities, not only towards your child but also towards your spouse and parents. A child insurance plan helps reduce your financial burden. It empowers you to start investing bit by bit, which ultimately builds up to a sizeable corpus.

     Save for Your Child’s Education

    As a parent, it is your most eager wish that your child receives quality education suitable to prepare them for their future. A child saving plan ensures that you are ready for your child’s higher education when the time comes. It is also helpful if the child is planning to go abroad for higher studies. Higher education overseas is an expensive affair and may seem out of your reach if you aren’t prepared for it. 

    Protect Your Child Even When You’re Not Around

    Let’s face it. Not being around for your family when they need you is one of the scariest thoughts which most of us don’t want to entertain. But it is a possibility that you have to be prepared for. In a child insurance plan - you, as a parent, are insured and your child is the beneficiary, with the future premiums being waived off in the event of your death during the policy term.

    Life is unpredictable. While we cannot control everything that life throws at us, we can be ready to take up the challenges. And when it is a matter of your child’s future, investing in a good child saving plan seems like the most sensible thing to do. After all, you wouldn’t play around with your child’s future, would you? Visit PNB MetLife's website to know more about Life Insurance, Term Insurance & Term Plan.
