    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.

  3. Why Stay-at-Home Parents Need Life Insurance

    Woman doing laundryDoes a stay-at-home parent need life insurance since he or she technically doesn’t contribute to the household income? The answer is yes.

    Why? Because, should the unthinkable happen to the stay-at-home parent, the other parent – the primary or sole breadwinner of your household – would have to continue working to support the family and also pay other expenses, such as childcare, to replace your at-home contributions to the family.

    The work contribution of a stay-at-home parent should never be discounted when determining life insurance coverage. It’s also not a question of “if” a stay-at-home parent should have as much, or more, or less, life insurance coverage as a working parent. Instead, determine the need for life insurance for a stay-at-home parent based on his or her contributions to your household.
