Gerber Life Insurance - Final Thoughts

What makes Gerber Life Insurance interesting is its targeted approach to the younger and senior population. Its life insurance offer starts with its Grow-up and Life College Plan and moves to its permanent life insurance policies. Other highlights include no medical exams features on some of its plans which makes it easy for almost everyone to enjoy the protection of a life insurance policy. However, the company suffers from less than perfect financial ratings and the lack of rider options. In general, Gerber Life Insurance is ideal for families who would like to get their kids started early on the right track or for those who would like to avail of a life insurance policy without the need of a medical exam albeit with lower coverage amounts.
