Dispelling the Confusion About Grow-Up® Life Insurance: Who Can Buy?

October 12, 2015

Meet Drake – Gerber Life Halloween StorybookThird in a series of five blog posts

Meet Drake the Vampire, who loves astronomy and usually has a telescope in tow. When he isn’t learning about stars and planets and black holes, he volunteers after hours at the local blood bank. Drake comes from a long line of Vampires and has a very close relationship with his great-great-great-grandad Count von Drake. Like most grandparents, the Count wants Drake to have financial protection in the future and is interested in buying a whole life policy for Drake. He isn’t sure that he can, however, since he isn’t Drake’s dad.
