Who To Call Help Desk Assistant

On October 9, 2009, NFC revamped the Who to Call for Assistance Web page making it easier for you to reach the appropriate NFC personnel for your specific inquiry.

  • Features of this new Who to Call Assistant include:

  • A topics-oriented landing page that guides you to the appropriate help desk.

  • New Help Desk pages that contain all contact information for that particular help desk, including:

    • All phone and fax numbers, and e-mail addresses.

    • A short description of the help desk.

    • The top 5-10 questions answered by the help desk to help orient you and ensure you are where you need to be for answers.

    • A Resources section on most pages that provides you with additional resources related to that topic such as Processing Tips, Bulletins, Procedure Manuals.

  • NEXT PHASE: The top 5-10 questions on each Help Desk page will be linked to answers. Our goal is to put as much information as possible at your finger tips.

E-mail Subscription Management System

The latest phase of our communications plan is a

comprehensive e-mail subscription management service that allows YOU to choose what information you wish to receive from NFC and customize how often you receive it.

  • This system will allow you to:

  • Create a Customized User Profile of information you wish to receive from NFC (e.g., product offerings, payroll updates, procedure manuals, newsletters, publications, customer notifications, etc.)

  • Manage a single profile for e-mail subscriptions instead of requiring you to join disparate lists.

  • Control Your Profile with the freedom to change or update e-mail addresses, sign up for new items, or unsubscribe at any time.

  • Receive Timely Communication through this automated service.

  • Trust the Communication Source because this service employs a certified e-mail capability which provides a special “trusted e-mail” marker in e-mails sent to major ISPs such as Yahoo! and AOL. This means we can ensure reliable delivery of messages to your e-mail inbox in a proven, secure manner.
