Integrated Partners
Oct 26, 2019

Bethesda, MD — Employee Navigator, one of the nation’s leading benefits and HR solutions for brokershas announced a partnership with Sun Life. The partnership will increase opportunities for small and medium sized business owners to offer their employees Sun Life insurance plans and help simplify the enrollment process for employees.

This integration will allow small businesses, with as few as two employees, to access these quality employee benefits in a modern self-service environment. Sun Life’s broad suite of benefits will be available on the Employee Navigator platform, including life, disability, dental, vision, critical illness, cancer and accident coverages. These coverages complement today’s health plans and give employees the opportunity to increase their financial protection against out-of-pocket costs.

“Sun Life is committed to simplifying the benefit administration experience for our brokers, employers and members,” said Joi Tillman, vice president of Voluntary Benefits at Sun Life Financial U.S. “By partnering with technology platforms like Employee Navigator, we can make sure the experience fits with the needs of different employers. An easy enrollment experience also helps ensure that people select the right benefits for themselves and their families to fill the insurance coverage gaps that many people in the U.S. face.”

The integration will also significantly reduce broker support that has typically been required when offering more comprehensive benefits. In addition to Sun Life products be connected via the Employee Navigator data exchange, the company will be one of the first carriers to configure the EDI file in Employee Navigator on behalf of brokers.

“Our goal is to make insurance more accessible to employees across the country and we believe Sun Life is an important piece of that strategy moving forward,” said Employee Navigator CEO, George Reese. “We look forward to building on the momentum we’ve already built and developing a long-term partnership.”
