"This collection of underwriting and product enhancements represents some of the most comprehensive changes made in the industry in over a decade," says Kevin Dougherty, President, Sun Life Financial Canada. "As part of our strategy, we are strengthening our commitment to making it easier for clients to plan for lifetime financial security and well-being. We are focused on continuing to develop innovative solutions that help do just that."
Sun Life continually monitors global medical advances to review underwriting requirements and make the client experience easy and helpful. By removing many underwriting requirements, Sun Life is simplifying the application process for Canadians.
