Scheduled Maintenance Notification

SCAM ALERT: DES has been made aware of a “mimic phone number” scam that closely matches the DES phone number for assistance with Medical, Nutrition and Cash Assistance. It may offer various “promotions” like retail gift cards and ask for a credit card number. DES advises customers to do the following in the event you misdial: 

1- Dial carefully. The correct phone number for the HEAplus Customer Support Center is 855-432-7587.
You should never hear any special offers or promotions or requests to provide your credit card when calling for assistance with benefits. If you do, hang up, check the number you dialed, and call again. 
3- Never give your credit card number.

Mental Health Awareness Month

Employment and Mental Illness

Mental illness currently affects more than 40 million Americans*, and yet many find the topic difficult to discuss. It is an invisible condition that touches one in five people* who are living and working in our communities. Having a purpose, like meaningful employment, can significantly affect how a person with a mental illness manages his or her condition.
