We invite you and your colleagues to take a couple of days out of your busy schedule to join us and the elite in the industry to listen to the NEXT GENERATION Contact Center & Customer Engagement Best Practices.
The department says it expects to receive 5,000 claims during its peak summer period.
The department recommends filing online instead of calling and gathering all relevant information before doing so.
It also recommends keeping handy the confirmation number that’s provided after filing a claim, to quickly locate and check the claim’s status later.
Mondays and Tuesdays are the call center’s busiest days, while Thursdays and Fridays are the least busy.
The center does not take calls on Wednesdays.
