If you have applied for Social Security disability and are awaiting for a determination from the Social Security Administration, be leery of getting phone calls from scammers offering to help you expedite or complete your application.
The Federal Trade Commission is reported that scammers are contacting people trying to obtain Social Security numbers, other identifying information, and seeking fees and payments from people fooled into thinking that these people are legitimate. If you fall for this scam, you are in line to be subject to identity and benefit theft.
