Benefits of “cash value”

  • Gerber Life sets aside money with each premium payment.
  • The longer you own the policy, the more cash value you build.
  • Borrow against the available cash value if a need arises.2

Medical exam not required for customers ages 18-50 and who apply for up to $100,000 of coverage. Coverage is dependent on answers to health questions. When you apply, you will need to answer several questions about your health, and your medical history may be taken into consideration.

Policy loan interest rate is 8%.

Whole Life Insurance FAQs for Seniors

What is whole life insurance?

Whole life insurance can financially protect your family for a lifetime. Premiums never increase. Cash value builds as long as you own the policy.

Is a medical exam required?

No medical exam is necessary, in most cases. Coverage is dependent on answers to health questions. A physical may be necessary for cause and for applicants ages 51 and older who apply for more than $100,000 of coverage. In almost all other circumstances, Gerber Life's customers will not need a medical exam.

How is whole life insurance different than term?

Whole life insurance never expires, as long as premiums are paid. You can own a whole life policy for a few years or a lifetime. For term life, you decide the how long you want a policy. Your policy expires at the end of a term. Whole life builds cash value, where term life doesn’t.
