There have been reports of phone calls made from a Department of Labor phone number (202-693-2700) soliciting personal information and/or promising funds to those receiving the calls. These calls were not authorized by the Department of Labor. ETA and the Department of Labor do not and will not solicit Personally Identifiable Information, such as your Social Security number, or other personal information, over the phone. If you receive a call like this from a number that looks like an ETA phone number, consider it a spam call, hang up, and report the call to the US Department of Labor at 1-855-522-6748.

For more information about how to recognize spam calls, please reference the IRS site about recognizing these imposter calls: https://www.irs.gov/newsroom/how-to-know-its-really-the-irs-calling-or-knocking-on-your-door-0

Financial education is essential for enabling low-income persons to enter the financial mainstream and achieve economic self-sufficiency. The Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation (FDIC) and the Department of Labor, Employment and Training Administration are implementing a joint initiative to offer basic financial education to participants of Welfare-to-Work and Workforce Investment Act programs nationwide. Products of this project include: - Money Smart, a financial education curriculum developed by FDIC. - Teaching Dollars & Sense: Implementing Financial Education in a One-Stop Setting, a how-to booklet from the ETA Division of Welfare-to-Work.
