Spanish term or phrase: Seguro de dependencia
Another isolated entry in the bibliography of an insurance expert. No other clue, but I was wondering if this would be related to old-age dependency (or conversely, for minors?)

seguro de dependencia
Explanation:
This is what is know as Long Term Care insurance, usually for the very elderly who fulfil certain criteria of dependence on others for basic needs. Is subject of government research in Spain, but there are already a lot of companies offering this cover worldwide. I talk from 3 years' experience as an in-house translator in an insurance company. Regret can't find bilingual references.

Explanation:
...her is an excerpt from an intersting page:

http://www.segurforum.org/mediario33-2.htm

"El Seguro de Dependencia en el exterior tiene el nombre de Long Term Care (Cuidados a largo plazo). Una de las experiencias pioneras en este sentido es el seguro combinado Vida / Dependencia en Estados Unidos."
