The savings that accumulate in a juvenile life insurance policy are typically tax deferred. This can make them an attractive option to investors. After the juvenile becomes a young adult or an adult, he or she can use the accumulated savings to pay for things such as college tuition or wedding expenses. Many juvenile life insurance companies even guarantee that their policies will continue to accumulate cash value no matter what is happening in the financial markets.
