Many people are facing financial hardship due to the COVID-19 pandemic. This includes the challenge of paying down and managing debt.
If these are challenging times for you financially, we’re pleased to introduce a solution that can help reduce your financial stress.
Sun Life Financial has partnered with a non-profit company - Credit Counselling Society, to offer free credit counselling and debt management services to Sun Life plan members until Aug. 31, 2020.
The credit counselling is always free. And for debt management, Sun Life is covering the $25 set up fee until August 31, 2020. The credit counselling organizations are waiving their ongoing monthly fees until August 31, 2020. These will resume in September.
You have access to one-on-one financial counselling with an accredited financial counsellor. The appointments are free, confidential and have no impact on your credit report.
You also have access to the Debt Management Program. This program helps you consolidate debts into one monthly payment that you can afford. It can help you become debt-free in a reasonable amount of time – without permanently impacting your credit or record.
If you’ve been affected financially by COVID-19, we encourage you to act soon. Quick action can prevent debt issues from worsening. It also ensures you can take advantage of this service at no cost.
To access these services, just tell the credit counselling service that Sun Life referred you. That’s all it takes – there’s no cost to you.
You can contact the Credit Counselling Society via phone at 1-888-527-8999 to get started right away.
- Weekly on Mon until Aug, 31 2020
