Fraudulent Ohio Benefits Calls

The Ohio Benefits Project Team is receiving reports that individuals in counties across Ohio are receiving fraudulent calls which are falsely identifying that their benefits are ending and requesting personally identifiable information (PII) such as their Social Security Number. 

These calls are not generated by the State of Ohio or any of its agencies. Please report these calls to the State of Ohio Attorney General's office at 1-800-282-0515 or online. 

 Official communications from the Ohio Benefits Project come from either (844)640-6446 (phone calls) or (614)350-2711 (text messages).
