LIfe Insurance For Children

Why should you get Life Insurance for children?

The COVID-19 pandemic has served as a reminder for many people about the significance of life insurance. It’s become one of the most talked-about topics at the dining table of the Canadian family.

A child’s life insurance policy is as important as an adult’s life insurance policy, but for different reasons. Premiums are paid, usually monthly or annually, in exchange for the assurance that in the most devastating event in anyone’s life were to happen and a little one passes away, the insurance provider would pay a death benefit to cover the funeral costs. The child is covered under a policy, usually the policyholder is a parent, grandmother, or legal guardian. If the covered child passes away, the policyholder can also be the beneficiary.

The death benefit is not the primary reason for purchasing life insurance on a youth, there are other great and perhaps far more important reasons. Guaranteed insurability and accumulated tax free savings are the main reasons. Whole life or Universal Life insurance policies for children are common, as they provide coverage for the rest of their life.

Policy premiums are usually guaranteed, and can be designed to have a limited paying period such as 10 or 20 years at which time they are paid up. In addition, a portion of the premium goes toward accumulating cash value, which can be retrieved at any time.

The plan can provide some or all of the education costs depending on the plan and need, without touching your savings account or retirement benefits.

Always talk with your Experior Agent to make sure this is the right way and you understand how the plan works both before purchasing one and touchpoints throughout the life of the policy.  

And it may in fact be a key component to getting a downpayment on a home or a start on a business. There are many examples of whole life and Universal life policies being used as wealth strategies with many wealthy families including the Rockefellers in the United States.

It is highly beneficial to get insurance protection for kids as early as possible. The younger the child, the lower the premiums for the coverage. Getting a child insurance product when they are in good health protects their insurability in the future from increased costs including chronic diseases, diabetes, MS or high blood pressure. Upon purchase of the policy, your child will secure insurability and insurance coverage in any situation that comes after.

It ensures that your children are covered. One of the major reasons for a child life insurance coverage is that, even if your kids develop a health ailment later in life, you are guaranteed that it will be covered. Furthermore, the insurer often offers riders (at a surcharge) that allow you or your kid to get more coverage in the future without a medical examination. This is called a guaranteed insurability rider. 

It enables you to lock in a low rate. With each passing year that you hold off on purchasing life insurance, rates will continue to rise. Obtaining life insurance for your child at an early age ensures a great low rate. Of course, you or your child will have to pay premiums for a longer length of time. However, because of the extremely low rates for children, the total premium paid over time may be lower.

It has monetary value. A part of a whole life premium goes toward creating cash value. Because the cost of insurance is cheap and there is a longer time for the monetary value to accumulate, a larger amount of the premium will go toward the cash value when you buy coverage for a child. This plan can help to provide for your child(ren)’s education if this is your desire, or whatever the desire for your child is.
