Future premiums are waived off for the child, in case of death of the insured. With the help of it, your child will not have the burden of paying the rest premium amounts. Some companies provide for payment of rest of the premiums as an inbuilt feature.

• Critical Diseases
The insurer will pay a lump sum amount for the treatment of your child in case of dreaded diseases. This of course comes at a cost, but ensures that the policy does help you to save your child.

• Accidental Benefits
