  1. FYI Scammers are calling regarding this topic as well as grants for further education by using disconnected phone numbers and presenting themselves as “The US Department of Education”. They ask for SS#’s and credit information. I’ve had close to 50 of these calls and several elderly people have been very confused. Please check into this.
