Good news: SunLife Financial sent me a refund check! Bad news: It was because they denied my policy for, according to them, failing to send all of my paperwork in on time. Um, I think faxing it in at least a couple days prior to the deadline qualifies as "on time!" I guess it doesn't count until one of their "customer service" people waddles up, picks up the fax, files it in my folder and inputs it into my account. Good news: On the same day as the refund check, they sent me a new pre-approved application for life insurance! Bad news: It'll be $472 more per year.
Question: You don't think they purposely denied my original application (for fictional deadline issues) so I'd be "forced" to accept this higher premium, do you? Answer: I guess I'll be shopping around for a new policy ... with someone other than SunLife.
