  1. Celebrating 50 Years of Protecting Families

    Every day with your family is a chance to create beautiful memories. Your kids get older. They reach new and big milestones. They make you laugh. Or, maybe you’re a grandparent enjoying a new generation of family fun.

    These moments are worth celebrating and, more importantly, worth protecting. That’s why Gerber Life Insurance has had the same mission for 50 years: to help parents achieve greater financial security and protection for their families.

     

    We believe that everyone should have the life insurance coverage they desire and need, even young families on a limited budget, and we offer insurance products for people at every age and stage of life, from infancy onward.

     

    Our quality and affordable family life insurance policies have been giving our customers comfort and peace of mind since 1967. As we mark our 50-Year Anniversary, we’re proud to have earned a reputation for dependability along the way.
