Annuity buy-out

Annuity buy-outsWhat is an annuity buy-out?

A traditional group annuity policy that transfers all the risks for a group of members from the plan sponsor’s balance sheet to Sun Life’s balance sheet.

How do annuity buy-outs work?

In exchange for a lump sum premium, Sun Life assumes responsibility for making pension payments to the covered group (which can include retirees and deferred members) and issues individual certificates to each member. We provide administration services and communications support, including a member call centre and distribution of annual tax forms directly to members
