  2. A Guide to Gerber Life Policies

    Guide to Gerber Life policies introAs parents, we want the most for our children. We work hard to put food on the table, keep a roof over our children’s heads and to give them everything they need in life. Our children are our whole world, so it can be difficult to think that there could be a day when we are unable to provide for them. Sometimes, however, the unthinkable does occur, and if it does, life insurance coverage can help to keep loved ones financially cared for.

    For many, life insurance can be a sensitive subject. To put it very simply, a life insurance policy can protect anyone who depends on your paycheck. There are, however, a wide range of policy types, each designed to meet a certain need and/or circumstance.

    No two families are identical, and as such, life insurance needs will often vary family to family. At Gerber Life, we provide life insurance for your whole family. Our range of policy types includes options that can fit your budget and that will protect all of your loved ones.

    Screenshot from video of the Gerber plantSince our launch in 1967 by the Gerber Products Company, “the baby food people,” Gerber Life Insurance has stayed true to the Gerber mission – helping parents to care for their children. Throughout the years, our company and our insurance policies have met the evolving needs of families all over the country.

    It all started with the Grow-Up® Plan1, an affordable whole life insurance policy designed to give kids a powerful head start in life, and has grown to include various coverage options for adults, as well as the Gerber Life College Plan2 – an endowment policy with an adult life insurance benefit that provides a safe and reliable solution for paying for college expenses.

    Our insurance evolves with the generations, but one thing remains constant: We continue to honor the legacy of Dan and Dorothy Gerber through our commitment to help parents care for their children, by providing the peace of mind of knowing that their children can have greater financial security no matter what life has in store.
