Insurance sector

  1. Excellence Award - Educational Fund: Commitment is a participating life insurance which offers life protection while building up ample reserves. The product offers a combination of Policy Continuation Benefit and the option of choosing two different beneficiaries for Saving Benefit and Death Benefit.

The level of protection and savings can be adjusted by subscribing to two different optional rider benefits, namely Protection Booster and Saving Booster.
  2. Excellence Award - Claims Management: My Sun Life HK app supports hospitalization and accident claims submissions from individual insurance clients1 offering a fast, simple and better way to manage insurance claims. By leveraging its in-house Straight-Through-Processing system and the Hong Kong Monetary Authority’s Faster Payment Systems infrastructure, Sun Life can settle and pay accident claims submitted through My Sun Life HK app within 24 hours at the earliest2, much quicker than with paper-based claim processes.
