The U.S. Census Bureau is committed to making the 2020 Census quick, easy, and safe for all participants.

Please keep in mind:

The Census Bureau will not send unsolicited emails to request your participation in the 2020 Census. Further, during the 2020 Census, the Census Bureau will never ask for:

• Your Social Security number.
• Your bank account or credit card numbers.
• Anything on behalf of a political party.
• Money or donations.

If someone visits your home to collect a response for the 2020 Census, you can do the following to verify their identity:

• Check to make sure that they have a valid ID badge, with their photograph, a U.S. Department of Commerce watermark, and an expiration date.

• If you still have questions about their identity, you can call 844-330-2020 to speak with a Census Bureau representative.

If you suspect fraud, call the above number to speak with a Census Bureau representative.
