Delays in vested benefits accounts

Dear customers

For some time now, we have recorded a large growth in our vested benefits accounts, and, as a result, an even greater increase in customer inquiries. Our team is working on additional assignements to answer all inquiries as quickly as possible. Nevertheless, the processing of your case may be delayed. 

We ask for your patience and understanding.
