Be Aware of Fraudulent Surveys Targeting FoodShare Members

The Wisconsin Department of Health Services (DHS) has become aware of a fraudulent survey offering cash and additional benefits for FoodShare members.

DHS does not give any member additional FoodShare benefits or cash rewards for doing something like completing a survey. FoodShare benefit amounts will only change when there is new information that affects a household’s eligibility, or when there is a federal increase based on emergencies like the COVID-19 pandemic.

Sometimes organizations or agencies outside of DHS conduct surveys that may include a cash reward. However, always look more into any survey before completing it, so that you can make sure it is safe to complete.
