Education Insurance Policies in Kenya

Before evaluating available education insurance policies, you should have considered the following:

  • The current age of your child and how soon you will need the money for the education.
  • The total amount of money you’ll need for your child’s education. This will depend on the quality of education and career goals you have for your child. You should remember to factor in inflation in the total amount you’ll need.
