Receiving Dental Care During COVID-19


Members Should Watch for COVID-19-Related Scams and Unsolicited Offers of Retirement Services

Even in times of crisis, the unscrupulous find opportunities for exploitation. Already, there have been reports of scammers using calls, emails and texts to sell bogus COVID-19 tests and vaccines, solicit donations for non-existent charities and to pry personal information from people waiting for CARES Act relief checks.

Not long after the Social Security Administration announced office closures in response to the pandemic, scammers sent letters to beneficiaries threatening suspension of their Social Security benefits unless they called a phone number to provide money or personal information.

From time to time, VRS receives reports from members and employers that various companies or groups have contacted them via email or phone to offer retirement counseling services or insurance products. With passage of the CARES Act, which allows coronavirus-related distributions from certain retirement plans, unsolicited calls to members may increase.

Please be aware:

  • VRS does not use unsolicited calls to contact members to offer services.
  • VRS does not sell services; all benefit counseling is free to members and retirees.
  • Correspondence from VRS will arrive by U.S. mail on official letterhead.
  • Emails from VRS will be sent from a “varetire.org” address and include the VRS logo and copyright.
  • VRS staff do not come to members’ homes to discuss benefits.

The VRS Security Center offers fraud prevention and online safety tips.
