More information regarding Sun Life is available at the McMaster Human Resources web site at McMaster Human Resources Services > Sun Life Benefit Information.

Some of the things you can do online through Sun Life's web site or mobile apps:

    • view your claims statements and claims history
    • view information regarding what's covered under your plan
    • check when your plan will cover your next purchases of glasses or lenses
    • see when you, or your family members, are eligible for your next dental check-up
    • enter a drug name or drug identification number to see if it's covered
    • print an "all-in-one" coverage card to keep in your wallet
    • download and print a paper claim form
    • send confidential secure messages and questions directly to a Sun Life Representative

Benefit year & annual claims deadlines

Please note that the benefit year for McMaster plans starts on July 1 and ends on June 30 of each year. You have three months after the end of each benefit year to submit claims. After that deadline, claims are not considered. Be sure to submit all claims before September 30 of each year.

Anniversary dates of certain benefits

Do check each plan carefully for the "anniversary date" of each benefit. If you submit a claim one day or more before your eligibility takes effect, it will not be considered. For example, if claims for eyeglasses are honoured once every two years, submitting a claim one year and 350 days after the previous claim will result in no payment. You must wait the full period before the benefit is honoured.
