Pru Offers Registration by Phone or Internet

March 4, 2002 ( - Participants in benefit programs offered by clients of Prudential Financial Inc's Group Insurance can now register online or by phone.

That’s because of the launch of the company’s new online application and an Interactive Voice Response unit, according to a company announcement.

According to the announcement, the online registration program automatically retrieves a participant’s personal information from a database and presents online users with their plans’ coverage and benefit limits, Prudential said. 

Those enrolling online can designate beneficiaries on the spot. Confirmation numbers are provided immediately for each product selected.
