Dividend options

Sun Par Accelerator polices are issued with the enhanced insurance dividend option. 

On each policy anniversary, any dividend we credit to your policy is used to purchase a combination of yearly term insurance and paid-up additional insurance. This combined amount of insurance is equal to the enhanced insurance amount in your policy.

Over time, the yearly term insurance is replaced by permanent paid-up additional insurance. In the future, once all of the yearly term insurance has been replaced, any dividends credited to your policy will be used to buy more paid-up additional insurance. At this point your death benefit will begin increasing.

The enhanced insurance amount is guaranteed for life. This means that we will guarantee both the enhanced insurance amount and the base insurance amount, even if dividends in the future are not enough to pay the cost of the yearly term insurance. It is important to remember that even with this guarantee, you must pay all of the premiums required for your policy.

Additional features

Sun Par Accelerator gives you access to cash when you need it most. The total cash value of your policy is made up of guaranteed and non-guaranteed cash values:

Guaranteed cash value: Sun Par Accelerator will provide you with a guaranteed cash value based on several factors, including the guaranteed death benefit and your age, gender and smoking status. A schedule of guaranteed cash values is included in your policy. With Sun Par Accelerator, guaranteed cash values will typically begin at the end of year 1. The longer you keep your policy, the greater the guaranteed cash value will become.

Non-guaranteed cash value Sun Par Accelerator provides non-guaranteed cash values that will build up in your policy on a tax-preferred basis. These cash values are created by dividends used to purchase paid-up additional insurance.

Policy loans are an easy way to access the cash value of your policy. You can request a policy loan at any time if there is enough total cash value in your policy. A variable interest rate is charged on the amount you borrow. You can repay your loan at any time without penalty. If you do not repay the policy loan, the outstanding loan balance will be deducted from the total death benefit of your policy.

Policy loan may be subject to taxation.

If the insured person is diagnosed with a terminal illness, you may be eligible to take a lump-sum advance equal to 50% of the death benefit, to a maximum of $250,000. This is a non-contractual benefit offered by Sun Life Financial at our discretion.

Within 90 days of the death of the first insured person, the surviving insured person may buy life insurance to replace the joint coverage without providing evidence of insurability.

The base coverage amount is paid out twice if both insured persons die together or within 90 days of each other.

Optional benefits (Non-participating)

While the base insurance amount and any additional coverage provided through the dividend option you choose is participating, the following optional benefits are not participating. The premiums for these benefits are not taken into account when we make decisions about dividends.

This benefit lets you purchase additional protection to cover a temporary need. You can also purchase this benefit to cover another person, such as a spouse, family member or business partner. You can renew this benefit and convert it another eligible life plan.
