Family Dependency Fund
Use the life insurance benefit to raise the children until they finish college. If you are surviving wife, you need it unless you want to work on a job while bringing the kids to school. If you are a surviving husband, you would have to raise the kids while balancing your work obligations.
If you just put your money in the bank, chances are, you lose money because of inflation or you lose money because of the high rate of increase of tuition fees. But if you put it in investment instrument, there is a chance that you have your money work for you until the children reach college- just the time they need it.
putting your money in the bank brings you nearer to temptation to withdraw it. Putting it in investment fund gives you less temptation because you have to make more steps (like going to the office) to withdraw your fund.
