    Apparently you can until 7pm I think but anytime I've tried calling after 5pm I haven't been able to get through..

    I just called the family line and got told the expected wait time was more than 90 mins. I hung up and called the employment line where there was no announced wait time. When it's really bad I get DH to call the pension line. They get through real quick lol

    Sent from my pho....oh who am I kidding. It's rarely used as a phone

    When you phone don't press anything and don't speak into any of the automated thingies. Often your call will then be redirected and put in a different queue.
