Welcome to the conversion microsite

Since Sun Life Financial acquired Assurant’s employee benefit business in March 2016, we’ve been working hard to combine the strengths of the two businesses. As the final milestone, we are converting Assurant Employee Benefits plans to Sun Life plans.

Introducing The MGIS Companies

A long-standing strategic partner of Sun Life, The MGIS Companies (MGIS) has worked exclusively through local brokers and benefit advisors to provide personalized, physician-focused insurance services since 1969. Since 2006, MGIS has provided Sun Life’s clients access to specialty products, elite service and specialized claims management—all designed with the needs of physician groups in mind. With your conversion to Sun Life, you too will have access to these specialized services.

MGIS Service & Claims

MGIS will both administer and provide your day-to-day service for your Sun Life plan(s). Please note this does not change or replace the role of your valued broker advisor.
