Questions and concerns about accounts handled by the Account Management Office should always be directed to the ITD Helpdesk at 631-344-5522. The Helpdesk should be able to answer most questions, or will open a Trouble Ticket initiating a response from the appropriate ITD representative. Calls made directly to the Account Management Office re: problems with accounts will be referred back to the ITD Helpdesk, and will only be handled once a Trouble Ticket has been assigned to it.
