VIA Benefits Scam

January 29, 2020   This morning we received a warning from one of our members about a call she received from “VIA Benefits” asking for information to set up a prepaid funeral account thru them.  She was leery about giving out any information so she called VIA benefits directly and they advised her that it did not generate from them.

We immediately contacted OPERS so that they would be aware of this situation and we wanted to let you know about this possible scam in case you get this or similar calls. If in doubt, call VIA Benefits at (844) 287-9945 or OPERS at (800) 222-7377

Thank you!
