What is Child Life Insurance?

Life insurance for children works much like life insurance for adults: the policyholder pays premiums, and the policy pays out to a beneficiary (in this case, a parent or guardian) if the insured passes away while the policy is active. Because most life insurance for kids is whole life, this coverage lasts their entire life.

Who needs Child Life Insurance?

These cases are rare, but you may benefit from buying life insurance on your child if:
  • Your child has a health condition that will worsen as they age
  • Based on family medical history, your child may develop a serious health condition early in life
  • You or your loved ones rely on your child financially

If you need to ensure your child’s life, adding a child rider to your term life insurance policy is simpler and cheaper. A child rider provides a death benefit if any of your children pass away without the complex investing component and can be converted to a permanent policy in the future if your child needs lifelong coverage.

When Life Insurance for Kids Does—And Doesn’t—Make Sense

Before buying life insurance for a child, make sure you have enough coverage for yourself. Protecting the financial well-being of loved ones takes priority. In fact, insurers usually require that parents have their own life insurance policies with at least as much coverage as they want to buy for a child as a prerequisite for insuring a child, Hoang says.

You also should make sure you’ve tackled other financial priorities before buying life insurance for a child. Building an emergency fund, saving for retirement and paying off high-interest debt should take precedence.

Take care of yourself before you take care of your kids. Then, if you have room in your budget, you can consider life insurance for your kids.

Although life insurance for a child doesn’t always make sense, it can be a good solution for some families. For example, high-income parents might find the ability to transfer wealth to their children through a life insurance policy appealing. Or they might like the tax-advantaged growth on the cash value portion of the policy.

Also, if your family has a history of genetic medical conditions such as diabetes, it might make sense to insure your child. Then you won’t have to worry about whether your child will be denied coverage later in life if he or she develops a medical condition.

Why is Child Life Insurance important?

Although it may feel odd to think about life insurance for your child or children, the benefits can go far beyond what we traditionally consider the younger you lock them into a policy. Here are just a few.

When you purchase life insurance for your children, you guarantee they have insurance protection at the best price – because life insurance is less expensive the younger and healthier we are. And let’s face it; we were all at our prime when we were younger!

It is better to buy life insurance for your children when they are young and healthy. This will provide them with insurance coverage no matter what health conditions might develop in the future.

Financial Security
Having life insurance is vital because it provides a foundation for financial security. Let’s look at what you hope your child will accomplish in life; college, marriage, home ownership, children of their own, owning their own business, funding their own children’s college, and retirement. Life insurance can help with all of these because of its cash value over the years.

For Example:
When your child is ready for college, a loan can be taken from the cash value to help pay for college expenses. Likewise, a loan can be taken from the cash value when your child is ready to purchase that first home and needs funds for a down payment.

Already have Child Life Insurance Switching is easy

It might be time to switch insurers whenever the service that your existing insurer provides doesn’t meet your needs. For example, if you have a poor claims experience or an unexplained rate increase, it might be time to consider other options

If you cancel a previous policy before a new policy is effective, you could run into some serious financial problems.
