LIC Jeevan Ankur Queries Should you opt for the Jeevan Ankur policy? Yes, because of the high risk, rider options to avail and the death benefit for the Life assured Jeevan Ankur is a good plan. What about komal Jeevan and Jeevan Kishore plans? Komal Jeevan is a Money Back policy for children, comparing to Jeevan Ankur, Jeevan Ankur is better as it gives High Risk cover and insures that the parent Life are Insured. For Jeevan Kishore and other child Plan , the risk is started little later. Even the death benefit is not good as compared to Jeevan Ankur. Also, the option for adding 3 riders, none of the plans have. Jeevan Ankur policy will never terminate if 3 years of Premium has been paid. Only the Sum Assured will reduce so you basically do not lose your money and yet the cover exists.

      Sir, Invest in Sukanya Samridhi Plan, Instead of going for any Insurance plan of any insurance company. All insurance companies give around 7-8% return p.a., Where as sukanya samridhi gives 9.2% p.a. tax free return.

      Sir, our observation is that all these child plans are waste of money. They offer return of around 7% maximum. You can higher return from PPF or mutual funds

    I want to start investment for my son (5 month old). kindly suggest whether child plan is better or any other way to save money for his future

    awaiting reply

      Dear Rajesh,
      I will not recommend any child plan. All these child Plans are marketing gimmicks, being used by these insurance companies to exploit emotional sentiments.

      I will recommend, to invest this amount in PPF. PPF gives assured tax free return @ 8.7% where all these child plans offer interest of around 6% -8% maximum.

    Please suggest me some child plan….

    1. Tax Dost Avatar

      Imran , I have found our that Child plans are really not required for child. If you have boy child it is better to invest the amount in PPF and if you have girl child open a Sukanya Samridhi Account.

      Sir, Instead of going for any Child plan of any insurance company i would recommend to open Sukanya Samridhi Account with ICICI or IDBI bank. I have also done for both of my daughters.

      Sukanya Samridhi Plan is definitely better than insurance plan. It is better to purchase term plan online then clubbing with insurance plans.
