Introducing Transamerica Voice Pass

Transamerica has developed a voice-recognition system called Voice Pass. In a few easy steps, Voice Pass can provide security and convenience when accessing your Essentia Health Retirement Plan account. It will identify you based on a stored voiceprint, which is as unique as your fingerprint. There's a short set-up process to get started. Once set up, all you'll need to do when you call in is repeat the phrase: “At Transamerica, my voice is my password” to access your account. You won't have to remember passwords or (in most cases) provide additional information when you call our Customer Care team.
