A message from our president

As always, but especially during this unique time, we are here for you. While almost all of us are working from our homes, we are as engaged and involved in meeting your needs as we have ever been. When the crisis started, we transitioned to working from home literally overnight, and we have not missed a beat since. In fact, since we moved to this new environment, I have never once heard anyone say that they couldn’t do what they needed to because they are working from home. And working from home is likely to last awhile for us. We need to give other businesses both large and small who can’t work remotely the time and space to reopen, help their employees get on their feet and access supplies like personal protective equipment and health screening equipment.

Providing income protection, life insurance for families, quality dental, vision and supplemental health coverage, as well as medical stop-loss insurance, have never been more important. We’ve introduced a number of new policies and programs to help you continue to provide these benefits, including extended premium grace periods, modifications to support continuing benefits to furloughed workers, premium credits for dental coverage, continuation of existing premiums for small businesses, and more to help ensure that you can provide the coverage your employees and their families need. We also have the online and virtual tools to ensure that you can do enrollments and communicate the value of benefits to all of your staff remotely. Just talk with your Sun Life rep, who is happy to help.

We’ve also taken steps to help our communities, dedicating more than C$1 million to local community organizations around the world that are helping people during the pandemic. And our own employees are helping their communities, their families and each other at this difficult time. The more than 3,500 Sun Life employees in the U.S., and more than 40,000 around the world, are working every day to make sure that the people we serve are as protected as ever.

We are here for you. We will always be here for you.


Dan Fishbein, M.D.
President, Sun Life U.S.
