What’s the difference between buying life insurance online and buying it from an advisor?

Policy details:


  • You must be between 18 and 69 and live in Canada.

Guaranteed premiums

We guarantee that your monthly payments will stay the same for the length of the term you choose – 10 or 20 years.

Easy renewal

You can renew this policy for the same term length you chose originally without answering any health questions. Your monthly payments will increase when you renew (because you’ll be 10 or 20 years older), then they’ll stay the same for the length of the new term.

Coverage amounts

  • $100,000 up to $1 million, in units of $25,000

Term available

  • 10 or 20 years


  • If you take your own life within two years of the date your policy takes effect, we won’t pay the claim. But we will refund all monthly payments paid up to then, minus any administration fees.
  • If you apply for Sun Life Go Term Life insurance more than once, you can’t get more than $1 million in total insurance coverage.
  • Find more exclusions and limitations in the sample policy.

Additional benefits

If you’re diagnosed with a terminal illness, you may be eligible for a lump-sum advance up to 50% of what your policy will pay when you die (your policy’s “death benefit”), up to $250,000. This isn’t a part of your contract, but is a benefit that we can choose to offer.

If you look over your new policy and decide it doesn’t meet your requirements, you can cancel it with no obligation within 30 days of issue, and we will refund your money.
