According to data from the WHOchildren under 28 days of age are the most likely to develop illnesses or suffer fatal accidents, since it is estimated that on average per year 2.4 million newborns die worldwide. Given this, the best alternative is to have a guarantee of access to first-level treatments in neonatology. These insurances for newborns can be contracted separately or be an extension of the major family medical expenses insurance that we already have contracted.

Life insurance and savings for education: This is probably one of the most popular insurances currently, which can be contracted by the parents of the minor from an early age to make considerable savings to pay for all the university studies of their children and guarantee their future.
For this, parents must set a long-term savings goal and make monthly or annual payments to collect said amount that will be delivered to their children at the time they require it.
However, unlike other savings plans, this one has the benefit that the sum is guaranteed even if the parent who owns the policy dies or is unable to continue making payments due to illness or disability.
