LIC Children Money Back Plan (Table 832) – Should I buy?
In my opinion, this plan will not suffice the purpose of buying it i.e. securing your child’s future. Life insurance should be for the breadwinner because the family is dependent on him/her. Although there is a benefit of insurance coverage that is worthless as nobody considers the death of the child during the policy term. And to cover the risk of the Proposer, you will have to pay extra on PWB rider.
Along with that, the annual return on this plan is quite low at around 4%-5%. With a meager annual return of 4% to 5%, this plan does not even beat inflation. Moneyback word attracts people but with such a less return, it doesn’t serve the purpose.
Rather, you should invest in other debt instruments like Mutual Funds (ELSS), or Public Provident Fund, and Sukanya Samriddhi Account. That gives a better return than this plan and also gives a tax-free return with 80C deduction on the contribution.
