About Sun Life

Sun Life will continue as the Okaloosa County School District's life insurance provider for 2017. If you elected life insurance coverage for calendar year 2016, you will automatically be enrolled in the same coverage for calendar year 2017. If you would like to enroll or make changes for 2017, you must go online to mybensite.com/okaloosa.The Board provides $25,000 basic term life insurance for all full-time employees. Employees have an option to purchase additional optional and dependent term life coverage. 

Life insurance provides your surviving family members with the funds to meet existing financial obligations such as unpaid medical bills, funeral expenses, the mortgage and other debts (credit cards, car loans, etc.).  As part of your Group Basic Life Insurance from Sun Life Financial, you are now eligible for two new services – Emergency Travel Assistance and Identity Theft Protection.. If you’re enrolled in Group Basic Life Insurance, you automatically have these services now, with no additional forms to fill out. Both services are provided by Assist America®.

Emergency Travel Assistance

If you have a medical emergency while you are more than 100 miles away from home, help is just a phone call away. By calling Assist America’s toll-free number, you’ll be connected to their staff of medically trained, multilingual professionals who can advise you in a medical emergency. If you or a family member needs medical treatment, their staff can connect you to pre-qualified, English-speaking doctors, hospitals, pharmacies, and dentists. They also can help if you:

  • lose a prescription
  • need to be admitted to a foreign hospital
  • require legal or interpreter services
  • need emergency medical evacuation

Identity Theft Protection

Identity theft is a serious crime that affects millions of Americans each year. If you ever become a victim, you don’t have to face it alone. You now have a powerful Identity Theft Protection program that can help you restore your financial records, credit reports, and more. With one phone call, you’ll receive step-by-step guidance from an anti-fraud expert, who will be assigned to help you until the identity thief’s “fingerprints” are erased from your records. For extra protection, you also can register up to ten credit or debit cards for online surveillance to help stop identity theft before it happens.

Assist America’s Emergency Travel Assistance is not insurance and does not replace your health insurance. In order to get reimbursed for medical bills, please follow the procedures outlined in your health plan.
