New worldwide online security measures are coming

Sun Life is updating our public and secure websites to support the most recent Transport Layer Security (TLS) and will only support the most recent up to date TLS standards as of September 15, 2019.

What is TLS
TLS is a worldwide standard providing secure communications over the Internet. It’s designed to protect people when sending and receiving sensitive information online.

Why the change
This is a global change that affects any http sites around the world. Sun Life is one of several organizations adopting this security measure for 2020.

How does this affect plan members
Plan members may need to upgrade their browser to access our sites. If a member uses an outdated browser after September 15, 2019, they will see a Sun Life-branded page advising them to upgrade their browser.
