New Customer Service Call Experience

Wespath will transition to a new, streamlined voice response system for Customer Service calls on May 23. When calling Wespath’s general number (1-800-851-2201), please be sure to listen carefully to the new menu prompts before selecting an option. If you have a moment after your call, please participate in a brief survey so we can continue to further improve your customer service experience. Thank you for your patience during this transition. Please note that we have not changed our phone number for plan sponsors or participants as part of this update.
