Customer Service

We’re pleased to report that 91% of members said they were satisfied with the level of customer service PEPP provides. 

We strive to provide the best service to Plan members. We are Plan members ourselves and headquartered in Saskatchewan, which means we understand the needs of our members from across the Province.

  • Email 71%
  • PEPP Website 41%
  • Telephone 38% 
  • Mail 24%
  • Face-to-face 18%

The top 3 referenced PEPP information resources were:

Plan Administration

The 2022 results showed 81% of members are satisfied with PEPP’s plan administration, which is a downtrend from 2021. We recognize that 2022 was a difficult financial year worldwide, and understand members are concerned about their portfolios. Markets are now trending upward, and we encourage members to actively monitor their fund performances through the PEPP website.

Digital Enhancements

76% of surveyed members said they were interested in accessing digitalized PEPP services, and 55% were interested in paperless statements and newsletters. We’re excited to hear this, as PEPP continues to encourage members to go digital to lower our environment impact and save costs.
