Add your newborn baby into your family health cover

You must add your baby to your family floater health cover, not wasting any time, that will cover both your baby health and your financial expenditure, which I am sure you are already drained out.

Have you ever search for an insurance plan for a newborn baby? You will find tons of option available online.

Open a separate bank account for your child

Sound crazy:

But its really important, having a bank account allow you to invest in several child based segments and create a financial portfolio.

Your child and his/her bank account also help you save income tax.

When you get a gift for your child in the form of cash, it’s a good idea to keep that amount separately in that saving account, which would be planned later.

I personally opened a PPF account for my son which is linked with the bank saving account, and parallelly I started a SIP in the mutual fund (equity) for my child future needs.

Start a recurring deposit

Recurring deposit is like SIP, In recurring deposit, you must open with the fixed amount every month deducted from the linked saving amount (which you already opened for your child) on the selected date and in return, you will get the interest rate as similar to fixed deposit.

I suggest opening for a long-term perspective.

Have you ever calculated an average education expenditure annually for the common man?

No

I will tell you.

You spend 15 % to 20 % of your income on child education during the initial stage.

The percentage is climbing day by day, Opening of recurring deposit will help you find some better option for your child.

Frankly speaking, if you can afford a good school or college, you can get a better education.

I don’t want to discourage the parents but whats to help find more opportunity to get your finances in better shape and utilize for the future of your child.
