WHAT'S NEW AT CCSSO

Unemployment Scam is happening in our area. If you receive a letter stating you have filed a claim and DID NOT file for unemployment please file with the following websites.
www.identitytheft.gov and www2.illinois.gov
If you need assistance with this we are here to help you as always.

When signing up for Social Security they had added a new layer of security and you will need a credit card (not a debit) or a smart phone to use to sign up and send in a photo of your drivers license.

Our new address is 17612 E Benton St., PO BOX 89: Mt. Carroll.
When coming into Mt Carroll on 52 or 78 head into town going north. Benton Street is the corner where the Dairy Queen and Fire station are located. Turn right and go east follow this street out and we are the last building (metal building with red roof) on the right side.

Used Cell Phones
Carroll County Senior Services are collecting used cell phones for recycling these do not have to work and we do not need cords or boxes.
You may drop them off at the center during regular business hours. Update on this to date the company that recycles these phones for the Senior Center has donated over 1MILLION educational books to schools across America. So not only do the phones help those in a disaster or our military, they do not end up in the landfill and each one donated that is useable, a book is given for our children and the Senior Center earns some money from them also.
