Hi MKumar,

Since inflation keeps rising and educational and marriage expenses have risen to such an extent that it has become extremely difficult for the common man to afford either, any amount invested towards insurance for children will go a long way towards ensuring that both these costs are met.

However, child insurance is also useful to ensure that your child’s life goals are met. Also, should any unfortunate event take place to the breadwinners in a family, then insurance can help secure the child’s financial future, especially since the risks prevalent in today’s world are on the up and up.
