Notice: Fraudulent Phone Calls Regarding TTC Pension Plan

January 26, 2024

Details of the Scam

We recently learned about a phone scam targeting retired members.

A client received a call from someone claiming to be a TTC Pension Plan employee, stating that a substantial amount was being held from their pension payments. The caller requested a VISA or bank card to facilitate accessing the funds.

The goal of these calls is to deceive clients into revealing personal information for fraudulent purposes. The caller might employ tactics like threatening to close your pension or demanding your account information to create a sense of urgency.

TTC Pension Plan will not ask you to update direct deposit information over the phone, especially not with a VISA.

What You Should Do

  • Never share personal or pension information with strangers or unverified individuals.
  • If you suspect that your confidential pension information may have been stolen or obtained fraudulently, whether online, by phone, or through any other means, please contact us immediately.
  • If you receive a call from TTCPP that seems suspicious, hang up and immediately call us to verify the legitimacy of the request.
  • If you accidentally share any details about your pension, contact us promptly.

Please call us at 1-800-663-6820 if you believe you received a fraudulent call about your pension plan.
