Did you know that Sun Life is the first and the oldest (124 years) insurance company in the Philippines? What makes the company stand out is its bright mission of financially securing 5 Million lives by 2020. So are you ready to take on the challenge of helping others and become a Sun Life Financial Advisor? If yes then you’re in the right place.
Sun Life was founded in 1895, three years before the Republic of the Philippines was officially founded when Sun Life first set foot in the country with the mission of giving Filipinos the opportunity to enjoy the humanitarian benefits of insurance.
Why Become a Sun Life Financial Advisor?
Are you here because of the attractive compensation package? You know, even if I can’t read your mind, I already know the answer because that’s the very reason why I joined Sun Life a few years back. But if you going to ask me today, my answer would be a lot different.
Here are the reasons to become a Sun Life Financial Advisor:
Earn Unlimited Income
Do you ever felt being salary-restricted when going to a mall to shop? How about eating out and being freaked out by how much a single dish costs? Ughh, that dream vacation of yours that is put on hold because of a limited budget? Did you know that Financial Advisors get to write their own paychecks? If you pursue this career then you get to buy your wants, eat without looking at the price on the menu and take a vacation without breaking your budget.
Work on Your Most Productive Time
Are you tired of waking up daily at 4 am in the morning to prepare for work at 8 am? How about the ever stressful traffic from home going to your office? I know it’s frustrating to brave EDSA just to arrive late in the office. You’re not required here to wake up early, you can rise from bed at 9 am and can still be productive.
Enjoy Professional Growth
Sun Life offers financial assistance in your financial education. It also offers FREE training and seminar so you can be confident in answering the questions of your clients. Promotion is also given to those who perform well regardless of age and tenure. I’ve seen as young as 22 yrs old being promoted to unit manager, making him the youngest unit manager in Sun Life’s history. Who knows if you’re the next in line?
Get Rewarded for Your Efforts
Don’t you love to be recognized for your hard work? No matter how big or small the battle Sun Life knows how to recognize it thru simple prizes like jackets, certificates, cash incentives, medals, trophies, and even one of your dream vacations like a trip in Boracay, Bohol, Japan, Carribean, etc. On top of that, Sun Life is very generous in giving bonuses you won’t get by working in an office setup (not unless if you’re the CEO/key person of a company :))
A Business of Helping Others
What I truly love about being a Financial Advisor is the power vested in us to change the lives of our clients. Commission, incentives, bonuses, etc are just like icing on the cake. Nothing beats the happiness that comes from securing the future of a family. We’re not there just to collect payments but rather become part of their wonderful journey toward financial freedom.
Steps to Become a Sun Life Financial Advisor
Being a financial advisor is still a job. You must pass all the steps needed to become a full pledge advisor. But don’t be intimidated yet because the steps are actually easy to do.
Here are the steps on how to be a Sun Life Financial Advisor:
1. Interview with the Manager
First, you need to reach out to a Sun Life manager and get an interview schedule. In the light of assessing if you are fit for the job.
2. Insurance Training
Sun Life provides FREE training to applicants before taking the licensure exam. Because insurance products can only be sold by a licensed agent under the Insurance Commission. Something you can take pride that you are not just an agent because you are trained and licensed to give financial advice.
3. Traditional and VUL Examination
After taking the training you may now take the licensure examination. The fee for two exams you must take is Php 2,020. This will motivate you, even more, to pass the exam in one go.
4. Learn About Our Products
Sun Life wants the best for you that’s why the company, by all means, provides training courses for you. You will also learn here how you can help your clients achieve their financial goals thru financial planning.
You must prepare Php 3,090 for the two licenses and Php 400 for notarization. Aside from this, you will be asked to submit the usual employment requirements.
Coding is the process of putting you in the system of Sun Life. And once coded, you are now eligible to sell life insurance plans and be recognized as a Sun Life Financial Advisor.
7. Helping Others Achieve Lifetime Financial Freedom
Reach out to as many people as you can and help them achieve financial freedom. Educate them and become their lifetime partner they can fully trust.
