Guardian boasts one of the most diverse product lines in the life and disability insurance marketplace. For families looking for maximum protection at a low cost, Guardian’s term insurance is a great fit. Our whole life insurance policies offer the protection you need to protect your families while also building liquid cash2 that can be used on college expenses or spent in retirement.3 Our disability insurance offers the most comprehensive coverage for families looking to protect their income in the event that they become sick or injured and can no longer earn a living at work.

Aside from Guardian’s exemplary product line, it also has exclusive rights to The Living Balance Sheet® (LBS)4 software.

We are offering two things to all people who stop by our booth at the New York Baby Show. The first is that we will be raffling off an iPad to all who elect to take our survey. The second is all who take our survey will be eligible for a complimentary consultation with either Andrew Campanella or Mathew Schwartz. Our goal is to educate the families attending the New York Baby show on the products and services offered by Guardian.
