Scammers have been trying to steal Social Security numbers for years.
Now, they’re trying to target your retirement savings as well.
Social Security scams target the elderly, people who rely on Supplemental Security Income (SSI), and people with disabilities.
Social security fraudsters will also try to use fake documents to gain access to your bank account or claim disability benefits.
Social workers, lawyers, and other professionals should have a well-rounded security plan, according to the Social Security Administration.
But it’s important to protect yourself from scams that are targeting your retirement or other important assets.
Here are 10 scams that might make you think twice about saving for retirement.
Social Tax Fraud: Social Security fraudsters may claim to be from your government and claim that they are entitled to Social Security benefits.
They might use the Social Check-Up (SS-14) application to verify your income and claim benefits, and they might also send out fake SS-14 forms with Social Security and income verification numbers.
To avoid this scam, check your bank statements and check the Social Tax Return (SSR) form before making any withdrawals.
Social Scam Victims: Social workers who receive their SSR forms or Social Check Up application at the IRS office may be a target for this scam.
If you receive a fake SSR form or SS-15 from an agency that claims to be an agency of the IRS, make sure you report this to the IRS.
Social Insurance Fraud: If you get a false Social Security number or other fake Social Security card, you could be a victim of Social Security scamsters.
Social fraudsters can claim that you are entitled under the Social Insurance Act (SIA) to receive Social Security or Social Security Disability benefits.
You may be asked to sign a document that says you are an employee of the government, such as a certificate or registration.
This document is usually stamped with your Social Security Number or other identifying information.
Social Protection Fraud: You could be victimized by a scammer who sends you an email asking for information about your disability benefits or SSR.
If the email is from an SIA agency, they may be using a fake Social Insurance number.
The scammer could claim that the SIA benefits are a scam and send you a fake card.
The Social Security agency could also use an SS-13 form to claim benefits.
Scam victims should report this scam to the SSA.
Fraudsters: If a scamming agent claims to represent the SPS, they could use a fake SSA number to get your benefits.
If an SPS agent is impersonating an SSA agent, the scammer might ask for a fictitious Social Security Card number or Social Insurance Number, which is usually a fake document that has the name of the agency or a fictitious signature.
Social Welfare Fraud: A Social Welfare Agency (SWA) scammer may use an email or fax to send out an email with a phony Social Security Certificate or SSS number.
This is the same fake document used by fraudsters to collect Social Security checks.
To prevent this scam from happening to you, verify your social welfare benefit and check your Social Insurance Claim Form (SC-8).
You should also check your social benefits.
Social Checkup Scam: If the scamming person asks for your Social Welfare Number or SSW card number, make certain it’s a valid SSA card number.
If it’s not, make a copy of it and use it as a guide to the scamster’s Social Security office.
Social scammers may also send you fake Social Check up forms to verify the identity of you.
This scam could be made up of two separate scammers, one that uses a Social Check Ups and one that is using a Social Social Check form.
Scammers can also use a letter or email to trick you into giving them your Social Status and Social Security Check number.
Social Fraud Victims: The Social Check ups and Social Welfare Check form can be used to collect benefits.
But the scamsters also send fake Social Welfare Checks or SS checks to people who do not have Social Security cards.
Social welfare fraudsters use these fraudulent checks to collect your Social Benefits and Social Status.
Social Workers: If someone is using your Social Check or SS Check as a fake number, you should report the scam to your Social Service office.
Scams can also be made through an online form that asks for a Social Security PIN or an email address.
Social insurance fraudsters are trying to trick people into giving their Social Security Numbers and SSNs to a scam company.
You should make sure the scam company has your Social Identification Number (SSN) and that it is valid.
Social worker fraudsters sometimes use a social welfare number or SS number as a bait to collect people’s Social Insurance Numbers.
The fraudulent numbers may be used by the scam caller to trick a social worker into giving out his or her Social Insurance numbers to a fraudster.
Social Services Fraud: The scam is made by a social services agency, like your
