Don’t be a victim of a Social Security disability scam!
It’s common to need Social Security help when you are filing for Social Security disability. After all, the process can be incredibly complicated, and even a minor mistake could end up costing your benefits. Unfortunately, there are people out there who have recently decided to take advantage of people who need assistance with the application process. Many applicants have had their identities and their benefits stolen because of these kinds of scams, and the first step to protecting yourself is to be on alert.
What should you watch out for?
Recently, the Social Security Inspector General released an alert of a phishing scam. This scam involves scammers calling Social Security applicants pretending to offer help with the application process. While they are pretending to help, they are trying to get your personal information, such as your bank account number and your Social Security number. Regardless of whether you’ve started the application process or not, you should be on alert for this scam. They may call you with the hope that you have started the application process.
