Honduras Life and Benefits Report Extract

Below are brief extracts of information from the Honduras Life & Benefits Report; more updated information may be available in the latest published report.

Life Insurance

A fairly traditional range of insurance and investment products is available in Honduras: there is a limited degree of product innovation; however, low demand and poor consumer awareness concerning financial services dilutes the appetite of insurers for significant investment in new product lines. There is a wide availability of products in USD providing a degree of stability against fluctuations in HNL.


Honduras is amongst the poorest countries in Central America: the latest official data showed that 48.3% of the population lived below the poverty line. As a result, there is no widespread demand for private pension plans.

According to the market supervisor (CNBS) there are five public pension schemes in operation which are managed by public pension institutions. There are also schemes for the employees of banks and insurers ....


In Honduras the public health service continues to face many challenges. There remains an insufficient number of doctors and trained staff, partly attributed to low salaries and the poor conditions of employment. Widespread shortages of basic medical equipment are commonplace. Services are focused in urban areas leaving rural areas typically underfunded.
