Beware: Scams to Steal EBT benefits

If you’ve received a text, phone call or social media request asking for your confidential personal information, such as your EBT card number and personal identification number (PIN), contact Employment and Training right away. We can help if your benefits are stolen, though they cannot be replaced.

Sonoma County and the state NEVER text, call or post social media messages asking for your personal information. Remember, keep your benefits safe and DO NOT give out your social security number, EBT card number or PIN to anyone.
