Contributions made to Pension Plans, Mutual Societies for Social Welfare, Guaranteed Employee Pension Plans, Business Pension Plans and Insurance that exclusively cover the situation of dependence on people with a degree of physical or sensory disability equal to or greater than 65 per cent (or 100 taxpayers whose disability has been declared judicially, even if it does not reach this level), a mental disability equal to or greater than 33 per 100 may be subject to reduction in the taxable base.

Contributions may be made by both the person with the participating disability and the persons with the same relationship, whether direct or collateral, up to the third degree, including the spouse or those caring for him or her, as a guardian or foster care. In the latter cases, persons with disabilities must be designated as beneficiaries solely and irrevocably for any contingency. However, the death contingency of the person with disabilities may generate the right to benefits for widowhood, orphanhood or for those who have made contributions in favour of the person with disabilities in proportion to their contribution.

These contributions will not be subject to Inheritance and Donations Tax.
