The Benefits Team has received an Employer Bulletin from CalPERS with the following information:
Potential Scammers Targeting CalPERS Members. Individuals are sending emails and making in-person requests for personal information.
CalPERS has been made aware of multiple attempts to solicit personal information from our members by individuals who claim to work on CalPERS’ behalf. Some of these requests have come via email, while others have been made in person at various CalPERS-contracted workplaces.
Please alert your staff that we do not solicit third parties to act on our behalf and offer financial or other services. If you come into contact with suspicious individuals or emails claiming to represent CalPERS and asking for your personal information, be wary, and report it to our Information Security Office.
