Why you should trust Insure.com
Gerber Life, which was founded in 1967 by the Gerber Products Company (known for baby food), focuses on providing life insurance especially for young families on a budget.
Gerber Life is now part of Western & Southern Financial Group, a worldwide life insurance company with $63 billion of life insurance in force. The company sells life insurance for people of all ages, but is well-known for its Gerber Life Grow-Up Plan, a whole life policy that keeps premiums the same and automatically doubles the death benefit when the child turns 18. It also builds cash value and remains in force for life as long as the required premiums are paid. The child can also buy more coverage as an adult, with rates based on their age, regardless of their health or occupation.
Another available product is Gerber Life’s Insurance College Plan that includes life insurance and money for college within the same plan. The payout money available through a College Plan policy can be used toward college or other expenses. For adults and seniors, the company also offers term, whole life and guaranteed life insurance policies. You can receive a free quote for a policy through the website. Gerber Life received an ‘A’, or excellent rating, from the credit rating agency AM Best for financial stability.
