Automatically enroll employees in disability plans

Do you auto-enroll employees in your company’s 401k plan? Employers with ERISA plans can close even more coverage gaps by auto-enrolling employees in disability plans too. Sun Life makes auto-enrollment easy. We can help you and your benefits consultant:

  • Assess whether your group is a good fit for auto-enroll
  • Build the best enrollment strategy for the benefits offered to employees
  • Enroll all coverages electronically – these plans are available on our Maxwell Health benefits administration technology and SolidifyHR enrollment platform

Check out our toolkit and more at www.sunlife.com/disabilityautoenroll and talk with your benefits consultant about the next steps.

New look and feel for Sun Life’s member portal

We’ve made some enhancements to our member portal, which was previously called Online Advantage for Members. It is now referred to as the employee’s Sun Life account and can be accessed at www.sunlife.com/account. This site’s key functions allow members to access dental ID cards, view benefits and claims (including dental EOBs) and view/submit disability claims. Note: If you have employees using our Plan Members portal, they will move over to this enhanced member portal later this year.
