There have been reports of phone calls made from a Department of Labor phone number (202-693-2700) soliciting personal information and/or promising funds to those receiving the calls. These calls were not authorized by the Department of Labor. ETA and the Department of Labor do not and will not solicit Personally Identifiable Information, such as your Social Security number, or other personal information, over the phone. If you receive a call like this from a number that looks like an ETA phone number, consider it a spam call, hang up, and report the call to the US Department of Labor at 1-855-522-6748.

Title :
  The Lifelong Learning Demonstration: Final Evaluation Report on the Experimental Site
Release Date :
Abstract :
  This demonstration to test strategies for promoting continuing education and training among mature incumbent workers (individuals age 25 and over with recent work experience) was initiated by the Department of Labor. A targeted public information campaign was conducted to provide information on the benefits of additional education and training and financial aid options, and to make it easier for the targeted workers to obtain information about education and training opportunities at local educational institutions. The evaluation used both randomly assigned treatment and control groups to measure the impacts of the information campaign on school enrollments, the number of credits earned, and the receipt and amount of Federal Direct Student Loans (FDSLs). The demonstration provided a rich source of information for analyzing questions relating to the education and training activities of mature incumbent workers.
