What is Gerber Life’s cancellation policy?

One great thing about Gerber Life is the simplicity of its cancellation policy. Essentially, if you close out your policy, you will not have to pay a surrender fee.

According to the Insurance Information Institute, a surrender fee reduces your surrender cash value, which is the amount received upon policy cancellation.

Furthermore, no matter when you cancel the policy, you will receive the accumulated cash value minus any outstanding debt against the policy. This applies to your policy no matter which type you have.

As long as the premiums are paid on time, Gerber Life cannot cancel your policy. This is applicable to both term life and your child’s whole life insurance policy.
