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

Satellite Telecasts on The Ticket to Work and Self-Sufficiency Program
Feb 27, 2002
The Social Security Administration is planning two interactive satellite telecasts to provide training on the final regulations implementing The Ticket to Work and Self-Sufficiency Program (Ticket Program). The telecasts will take place on March 11 and 18, 2002, from 2:00 - 3:30 PM, EDT, and will feature panel presentations by staff from the Rehabilitation Services Administration (RSA), SSA, Maximus, Inc., and several State VR agencies. The presentations will discuss the provisions of the final regulations and their impact on the VR program. Viewers will also have the opportunity to call in questions during the broadcasts. There are also plans to tape the training and make it available in a timely manner to those who cannot view the telecasts live.

These telecasts are being coordinated by the George Washington University Regional Rehabilitation Continuing Education Program.
