Who are we? SunLife, by the numbers
Our roots are over 200 years old
What's more, back in 1900 SunLife was the very first company to offer life insurance without a medical – something we still do today, with The Guaranteed Over 50 Plan, the UK's most popular over 50's life cover.
We've over 800,000 policies
We're proud to be a household name that people trust, and from our offices in Bristol, our people work hard to repay that trust – with straightforward, affordable and rewarding products. We help customers protect their world, pursue their ambitions and prepare for the future.
We believe in life after 50
Like our advertising campaign says: Welcome to life after 50 – They could be the best years of your life. We conducted the biggest study into life after 50 ever undertaken in the UK – so we understand what people over 50 value and we're better able to meet their needs.
