Sun Life was set up in 1810, when the Sun Fire Office Board decided to open a separate company to offer life assurance and were the pioneers of offering life assurance with no medical examination.

During the late 19th and early 20th century Sun Life accumulated 20 other life assurance societies and incorporated them into the growing business, and in 1979 - in response to the need to simplify life assurance - Sun Life launched the first over-50s cover plan.

Today, Sun Life Direct (formerly Sun Life) is the market leader in guaranteed acceptance for whole of life cover for the over 50s

Extracts From Government Publications


CP 106 "The Personal Investment Authority (PIA) issue guidance (Regulatory Update 85) in March 2001, asking provider firms to take steps to ensure that policyholders who were considering the surrender of a life policy were informed that they might be able to trade their policy instead."

COB 6.5.50R(5) "requires a firm to ensure that the policyholder is made aware of the existence of the secondary market and how he might access it."
"If you have a with-profits endowment policy, you may be able to sell it on the second-hand endowment market.
If you’ve been paying in for at least seven years, you’ll probably earn more if you sell a with-profits policy rather than cashing it in."
