1. If we do not meet the terms of a guarantee, a policyholder may request in writing a service guarantee review. Sun Life will determine whether it failed to meet the guarantee and whether a payment is made. If the request is approved, payment will be made by check during the policy year, as long as the policy remains in force during this time. Sun Life’s maximum liability under this guarantee for any policy year is limited to the lesser of 3% of the policyholder’s annual LTD premium or $5,000. The maximum payment for a breach of any one guarantee is one-third of the maximum liability ($1,667). If a policyholder has more than one line of insurance coverage, the Overall Satisfaction guarantee will be paid only if the service issue arises under this guarantee.
