Your pension experience… we make it easy!
We’re making the online experience better for members In March, here’s what we’re adding on mySunLife.ca to make us even easier to do business with for you and your employees.
Pre-populating information on the Plan Member Disability Claim statement
We’re making the form easier to complete by pre-populating the employee’s address, member ID and policy number. The fields can be edited in case they’ve moved and need to update their address. Don’t miss out! You can give your employees the ability to submit online by using the standard Plan Member Disability Claim statement rather than a customized one. If your custom form includes only your policy number, company name and/or logo, talk to your Sun Life representative about changing to the standard form.
Linking to missing forms
To process a disability claim, we need information from you, the employee and the attending physician. If information is missing, we “pend” the claim. Now, when we’re missing information, we will let employees know what we need and we will provide a link to the missing form.
Our work improving the digital disability experience will continue in 2019 with improvements to the Group Benefits Absence and Disability application on the Plan Sponsor website. Watch for more details.
Employee Benefits Update:
As previously communicated, effective January 1, 2019 we have transitioned our benefit program to Sun Life Financial.
