If your question supposes that you purchased life insurance for the child before he/she reached 18, you are free to continue it or not. It may well be a good idea to continue it because a medical condition may develop later in life that makes it hard or impossible for the child to later get life insurance. Naturally, you can reach an agreement with the child that he/she take over the payment of the premiums.

Protect Your Child at College with Student Health Insurance?

Do you have a child that is going away to college or is currently a student at a university? If so, your child may no longer be covered under your health insurance policy. Check with your provider when your child turns 18 to see if your child is still covered under your health insurance plan, as many health care providers consider the age of 18 as an adult. If you need to purchase health care coverage for your child, ask the college if they offer student health insurance. Most colleges offer insurance to students at a very reasonable rate.

If two children are the beneficiaries on a life insurance policy and one is under the age of 18 who gets the money for the minor child?

No one. Each child will be able to collect their share of the money when they are 18. The money for the minor child will be kept by the insurance company until the minor turns 18. This is why it is not a good idea to name minors as beneficiaries of life insurance policies if the money would be necessary for the upbringing of the child. Either name an adult that you trust or create a life insurance trust to be named as the beneficiary.

In state of kentucky do you have to pay child support after child is 18?

If there is no child support owed that is in arrears, for Kentucky child support orders, the child support order ends when the child turns 18, unless he or she is still enrolled in high school, in which case child support would continue through the school year in which the child turns 19. Under certain circumstances, child support may continue past the child turning 18 (or 19 if still in high school) if ordered by the court. If the support order is for more than one child, the support obligation will not automatically end when one of the children reaches 18 (or 19 if still in high school) unless that child is the youngest child or the child support order listed a separate amount of child support for each child. If neither of these conditions exists, a request for a review of the child support obligation must be submitted before any change in the obligation amount can be made. If child support is in arrears, it will continue until the past due amount is completely satisfied.
