About Guardian Direct®
Our industry is changing – because the world is, too. Now, everyone cuts their own path. From self-starting entrepreneurs to self-sufficient retirees. And for you, the old approach to insurance and financial planning isn’t cutting it anymore. You want options. Control. Access. Transparency. You want help choosing the best plan for you. That’s why we created Guardian Direct.
Guardian Direct may be new, but our beliefs aren’t. More than 155 years ago, Guardian Life Insurance was started by a civil rights lawyer named Hugo Wesendonck. His dream was to build a company that could offer quality care to everyone. Let no one fall through the cracks. Now, we’re carrying that torch into the future.
The Guardian Direct mission is to make Guardian insurance coverage easily accessible to everyone. The way we live and work is changing. The way Guardian offers insurance needs to change too. Our challenges, our dreams – they’re all unique. And everyone deserves a plan that’s right for them. Guardian Direct is here to help.
Making Guardian insurance coverage accessible to everyone through Guardian Direct, a new digital way to research, buy and manage insurance products that is clear, simple, and transparent.
