Scams are on the rise. People often pose as a government agency during times of crisis and prey on the most vulnerable population.  People who rely on government assistance are often targets of impostor scams.  It is important to question the identity of any person or the source of information regarding government assistance and stimulus payments.  Another scam going around is sending a text to people telling them that their stimulus check is ready and asks for verification. Check out this story on Wall Street Journal. If you suspect you are being targeted by a scammer alert the Office of the Inspector General by clicking here.  Also, you can go to Social Security site at ssa.gov/coronavirus/ for updates and answers to frequently asked questions.
