  • The Gerber Life Guaranteed Life Insurance policy comes with a graded death benefit limitation. It applies to the first two years of coverage when the policy is issued. For applicants age 50-80 (50-75 in New York) who die (for any reason other than an accident as defined in the policy) within the first two years of coverage, the death benefit will equal 110% of earned premiums. The full death benefit amount is only payable after the first two years of coverage (one year in ND).

    After the two-year Graded Period, if the insured dies for any covered reason, the full face amount of the policy will be paid to the beneficiary. If the Insured dies by suicide within two years from the Issue Date of the policy, or any shorter period as may be required by applicable law in the state where the policy is delivered or issued for delivery, the only amount payable by us will be the premium paid for the policy plus 10% interest, less any debt against the policy. Please refer to your policy contract for specific details regarding exclusions, limitations, benefits and shorter time frames that may vary by state.
