Thinking about our economy is something we should do frequently. Knowing how to handle and protect it becomes a must as we age. In this context, we should also consider buying insurance, and we know that this may seem like an expense at first, but it is something that is profitable for life itself .
Having any type of insurance can offer you many benefits, among which are to protect you financially against any unforeseen event, accident or loss. And, what many people don’t know is that some of them are tax deductible.
In this sense, Ahorra Seguros shared with us which are the insurance that we can deduct from taxes and under what conditions, within them are:
- Major medical expenses insurance
- Retirement or retirement insurance
- Savings plans
- Education insurance.

What is endowment life insurance?
According to Fundación MAPFRE , it is an insurance modality by which a minor is instituted as a beneficiary of the policy, in this way the delivery of capital is guaranteed on a certain date, regardless of whether the insured dies or not before the expiration of the same.
Under what characteristics can we deduct the aforementioned insurances from taxes?
As a natural person, not all the payments you make on the insurance service are tax deductible, since only the annual cost of the insurance premium applies, as explained by the Ahorra Seguros portal.
For its part, in endowment life insurance, the only thing we can deduct is the part corresponding to savings. While in the case of major medical expenses, the deductibles are expenses in medical fees, consultations, dental services, hospital payments, psychological consultations, nutrition, among others. To achieve the latter, the doctor you go to must be registered with the Tax Administration Service (SAT) and have the availability to issue receipts and invoices.
Also, the voluntary contributions you make to your retirement savings insurance are tax deductible.
As legal persons, what are the insurances that we can deduct?
- Business insurance
