Sun Life Financial - Get Help with Your Pension

Personal Consultations with a Sun Life Representative - three ways!

A personal consultation is the best way to have your questions answered. All consultants are salaried employees of Sun Life which helps ensure your goals are the only goals. You have choices, depending on your needs, and where you are at in your career.

1/On-campus meetings are held at different times during the year and offer the option to meet in person with a Consultant from Sun Life. If you need support, no need to delay to the next visit. See option 2 and 3 below or call Sun Life at 1-866-733-8612.

A Financial Services Consultant with Sun Life's 360 Plan Advice service can provide you with personal, unbiased, one-on-one investment advice on your Western Pension Plan AND they can also help you build your broader financial plan. Book an appointment between 8 a.m. and 8 p.m., and if you wish, include a spouse or trusted friend in your planning discussion. Once connected, you’ll be able to reach out to your consultant when you have questions as your plan evolves.
