How important child investment plans are
Honestly, in today's world child savings plan are really imperative. Most of parents are busy in doing their regular home and office chores. Parents today either send their children at school or keep them in the custody of nanny or their grandparents and they move for achieving their career goals. They try hard to meet deadlines as set by their employers, most of the time they involve in cutthroat competition with their colleagues. Even on Sundays and holidays neither the father nor the mother is left with minimum energy to think anything productive about their little one's career. So in such situation it is fruitful to have a child's plan, in that way you can secure your child's dreams. All you need to determine how much you would need for your child's education and marriage and depending upon the existing cost and considering inflation roughly 6 to 7 % you have to choose the plan.
What maximum parents tend to do?
Parents mostly are seen to be investing in life insurance and ULIPs where for an assured sum premiums are paid yearly or on half yearly basis. But often insurance agents are seen to be cheating investors by charging high, as busy parents are relatively unaware of lucrative 'child plans' so they find these investments satisfactory. Although there are number of child investment plans accessible around and knowing about these plans will help one determine which way one should be moving.
Child education plan
While opting for child education plan, parents will be ensuring both protection and benefit. Even there are some ULIPs which help in gathering wealth. This plan is meant to offer security and safety to a child so that in future his or her education never stops due to any reason or based on any ground. There are number of insurance companies which take wide interest in providing child education plans. If you are still wondering whether you need education plan or not, well the answer is surely YES. Based upon inflation, in few years the cost of engineering, medical and even other vocational courses will be so much that you will be requiring minimum 20 lakh to start with. If you find the course to be 10 lakh is rest assured that within 10 years or 15 it will be roughly about 30 lakh? So to meet the end you may have to borrow money, to avoid such situation it is better to invest now so that emergencies and urgencies can be avoided and your child's dream may remain secured. Such plan performs as a savior and helps one stay relaxed.
