Dear Crissy

Gerber Life College Fund

Gerber LifeTwo weeks ago tomorrow, we celebrated Evan’s first birthday. After we wrapped up the festivities and took inventory of his gifts, we realized that the kid made out like a bandit in the cash department. As Zach and I discussed how we would use Evan’s birthday money, we decided pretty quickly that it should be put away–perhaps used to start a savings plan for him. Among the options we are considering is the Gerber Life College Plan. Yes, Gerber, as in cute little baby’s face that you’re familiar with from the baby food jars.

The Gerber Life Insurance Company has actually been providing quality life insurance to families hoping to save money since 1967. It’s really kind of crazy to me that we are having conversations about Evan’s college, but like it or not (and let’s be clear, I don’t!) he will be at that phase in his life before we know it.

One thing that I particularly like about the Gerber Start Smart College Plan is that the benefits are guaranteed:

The Start Smart College Plan provides several advantages over other methods of saving for college. It offers guaranteed benefits at affordable premiums—no worries about stock market or interest rate fluctuations. Also, life insurance guarantees the full benefit payment for your child, even if you’re no longer there.

We still aren’t sure what avenue we are going to take to begin saving money for Evan’s future, but the Gerber Life Plan is certainly on our short list of possible options!
