How to reduce your call wait time

DRS specialists are available weekdays from 8:30 am to 4:30 pm. Call Tuesday through Thursday, avoiding the lunch hour, for the shortest wait time.

Because of COVID-19, call volumes and wait times have increased. We appreciate your patience as every available team member answers calls in the order they are received.

Leave a call back number when prompted to keep your spot in line and avoid waiting on hold altogether.

Avoid hold times by logging into your online account to send us a secure message.
