Sun Life of Canada Celebrates June as Financial Independence Month

Sun Life of Canada Celebrates June as Financial Independence Month 

"It is not your fault if you were born poor. But to die poor would be the fault of no one but yours".
Lorna has been unemployed for the last ten years. Due to a valid medical reason. She is one of the lucky ones who enjoyed the unwavering support of her family and friends. She was lucky enough to have been able to saved money when she was still actively working. Lorna may not be actively working but she gets by through the help of her savings and investments. 

Lorna's classmate Fe is not as fortunate. Fe is the "isang kahig isang tuka type".  It simply means no work, no pay.  She hardly had enough money to splurge.  Fe, has hardly able to have both ends met. Fe can't even maintain the medicines that she needed to take. Oftentimes, Fe has to line up at the PCSO office in order to have the money she needed for her medication. She's still employed but it seems to her that her salary was not just enough for all her expenses.

When you compare Lorna and Fe, you'll easily recognize who had the financial independence to insure her future. Everyone's health changes with age, and as time goes on we'll spend more money to manage it.

Life is full of surprises. You never know what the future holds tomorrow nor in the days to come. 

Just like me, many Filipinos are not investing in financial products because they are unaware of its importance and value. Good thing there's Sun Life of Canada (Philippines), Inc. 


Last June 1, 2016, a Wednesday, Sun Life of Canada launch the month of June as financial independence month. Ms. Valerie Pama, President of Sun Life asset management encourage everyone in the Philippines to be financially independent and have money for life.  

A mini-workshop on how we can RI5E to be more financially independent and rise onwards to a financially free Philippines with Mr. Aya Laraya of Pesos and Sense followed to promote financial literacy. Sun Life aims to educate the people on how to address their financial quotient.
We should be like the ants and the bees who reserved enough food and honey for the future.

We should always remember that each and everyone of us need money in order to survive in this world.  We could not always rely from the government or from charitable institutions to provide for your needs.

Money for Life is a comprehensive, personalized financial planning program that will ensure a client will have sufficient funds for every stage of his life.

I was lucky to be among the first ones who were able to experience the Sun Life of Canada (Philippines), Inc. "Bus to the Future" equipped with the latest VR headseats wherein I was able to view Papa Piolo in a 360-degree visual reality video talking about the value of financial planning. After which, I was transported to different scenarios based on my chosen life stage. It was so cool! Imagine I was able to live the lifestyle I've been dreaming of, for a minute there, I thought it was real. I was really encouraged to start planning for my future through Money for Life and Sun Life's insurance and investment products now.
