  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.

    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.
