SGI has plan in place for postal service disruption
MySGI service minimizes customer impacts
June 23, 2016
With the potential for a Canada Post service disruption as early as July 2, SGI is reminding customers there are options available, including online services, to help minimize any possible service impacts.
Customers are encouraged to check the expiry date on their driver’s licence, vehicle registration or any SGI CANADA insurance policy they have to make arrangements to renew them as regular reminders will not be sent in the event of a postal strike. This will ensure insurance coverage does not lapse.
Customers can continue to do business in person with motor licence issuers and SGI CANADA brokers. They can also complete complete driver’s licence and vehicle registration transactions online through MySGI.
“While some minor impacts are expected in the event of a postal service disruption, SGI’s priority is to continue meeting customers’ needs,” said Andrew Cartmell, President and CEO of SGI. “Anyone concerned about missing an important notification from us can sign up for MySGI and provide an email address. With a MySGI account, we can send you reminders and important notifications electronically, such as email reminders about driver’s licence and vehicle registration renewal dates.”
In addition to renewing vehicle registrations online through MySGI, customers can also track claims, make e-payments and print vehicle registration certificates from the convenience of their home.
For more information about how to avoid service delays in the event of a postal disruption, customers can call their broker or SGI’s Customer Service Centre at 1-844-TLK-2SGI (1-844-855-2744). If a postal disruption does occur, SGI will share further details about options for customers to access SGI services. Information will also be posted on Facebook and Twitter.
