Changes to our Member Support During the Pandemic
As we continue to monitor Coronavirus (COVID-19) developments closely, the health and well-being of our members and staff is of utmost importance to us. After careful consideration, we have decided to further limit our in-person interactions with members to phone calls only.

Our Certified Financial Planners and Pension Information Officers remain available to support members by phone. All in-person meetings will now be done over the phone. Members who have in-person meetings scheduled will be contacted by phone at the scheduled time.
