HDFC SL Children’ s Plan is traditional child plan with a large amount of variety provided to the policyholder who can choose the range of benefits that he would like to receive. In this plan, the life of the parent is insured but the child is the sole beneficiary. It ensures that the child’ s future is guaranteed under all the 3 options such that if anything happens to the parent during the policy tenure and he is unable to complete the policy term, then also the child’ s future is secured by providing him with the guaranteed benefits.
