Options to Continue Benefit Coverage With SunLife
If you have benefit coverage with SunLife as a Target employee you may have an option to continue certain benefits on an individual basis after your current coverage provided through Target ends. In most cases, your group benefits coverage with SunLife ends on your termination date. For most Target employees, that date is May 16, 2015 (May 30 for employees in Manitoba).
Target employees who had life insurance coverage or health and dental benefit coverage while employed by Target may be eligible to continue that coverage on an individual basis after May 16th (or May 30th for employees in Manitoba).
There are two separate deadlines that apply if you wish to continue benefits coverage.
If you wish to continue life insurance coverage you must apply directly to SunLife within 31 days of your termination date. If you elect to continue coverage on an individual basis you must pay the cost of those benefits.
If you wish to continue health and dental insurance coverage you must apply directly to SunLife within 60 days of your termination date. If you elect to continue coverage on an individual basis you must pay the cost of those benefits.
Please note, if you are a Quebec resident, certain other rules apply to you. You may be required to enroll in prescription drug coverage with RAMQ unless you have other prescription drug benefit coverage.
