Unable to contact after several trials of many hours...

by Philippe on Mar 7, 2022
1 out of 5 stars

I have called several times and have been unable to reach anyone for help...
After one hour of waiting, I am told I am not at the right place (despite having had advice from the local advisor to call these numbers) and I am transferred to another line where the wait is over one hour. I eventually had to leave as I have to work and I am not able to take a day off work to get through the system.
And the same process is ongoing.
What am I supposed to do?
It seems to me that the company is incompetent or is mainly concerned about maximizing profit but certainly doesn't care about customers.

Unacceptable customer service

Impossible to get through to their helpline. Tried calling through the mobile app. It doesn't work - there is no such option that comes up. Every year, despite adding my beneficiaries, they remove my daughters from coverage without any intimation to me. Unfortunately, I don't have a choice as they are appointed by my employers. I would NEVER use them.

Like pulling teeth

I had group benefits offered via my employer which were terminated. Sun Life got the date wrong so they cut my online access for medical, but not dental. I spoke with over 10 agents before reaching out to HR. It's a hassle dealing with Sin Life and I can guarantee you will need to call in at least 4 times before settling a simple claim.

Did you know that if you are a 35-year old female, a term life insurance policy for 10 years with coverage of $500,000 will cost you around $15-$20/month? Getting your life insurance quote today will allow you to lock-in a great rate.

If I could rate them lower than 1 on customer service, I would

I had an issue with my plan. Each time I'd call I'd be put on hold for 20 minutes, then transferred to someone else for another 20 minutes, at which point the call would go to voicemail. I did have someone call me back, only to tell me they weren't the right department and give me a "different" number to call... it was the same number. I got through to someone who was again no help, and he literally told me the calls (one of which I'd just finished 15 minutes earlier) didn't happen. Despite me having my phone with me and being able to check that yes, I had called multiple times and gotten a call back. He proceeded to insist if it wasn't in his system it didn't happen. So apparently my phone (not to mention my own memory of the hours I spent on hold) did not happen... it's still not fixed. He didn't fix it. I'm just going to *hopefully* start uploading all bills online. If it wasn't a group plan I'd fully demand to switch providers at this point because the people at Sunlife are truely something else. I've never had customer service not only be disinterested in issues before, but then actively deny they happened... are people at Sunlife trained to be as bad at their jobs as possible? If you have a choice, choose something else.

If it were possible to give negative stars I'd do -10.

Dropped calls, dropped chat, and costumer service reps that are completely useless.

Save yourself the time of calling / chatting with them and just punch yourself in the head. The result will be the same, you'll end up frustrated and with a headache, but with the punching option you'll have a couple extra hours to do something you enjoy.
