State Cash Pool Earnings Reach Eight-Year High
 
The state's cash pools earnings have reached an eight-year high, thanks to years of fiscally prudent practices under conservative leadership, and an improving economy. The cash pool is comprised of the state's financial resources which include savings accounts, money market accounts, federal agency securities, U.S. Treasury notes and other resources. It first exceeded $1 billion in February of this year, with earnings reaching 1.24 percent in October, earning $3.37 million during the first quarter of the fiscal year, which began in July of this year. This is great news for Maine tax payers, as every dollar earned is one less dollar Maine taxpayers must contribute to cover the state's expenses. 

Maine Office of Information Technology Announces Data Breach
 
The Maine Office of Information Technology (OIT) has announced that personal information of 2,100 individuals included in the Maine Department of Health and Human Services child welfare services database may have been compromised during a technology system upgrade. The upgrade, which was carried out by a contractor, temporarily posted the database to a third-party website outside of the State of Maine system. According to a release, "The file consisted of information including the names, addresses, and Social Security numbers of persons receiving foster care benefits, as well as the names of children and legal guardians of individuals participating in the program." OIT is currently in the process of mailing the identified parties to let them know about the exposure and to offer them one year of credit and identity monitoring. The notification is available here.

Maine Bureau of Insurance Provides Resources for Storm-Related Damages
 
Following the major wind and rain storm that swept through the state, resulting in widespread power outages that lasted for a number of days for many Maine households, the Bureau of Insurance would like to remind Maine residents that they are a resource for those who sustained weather-related property damage. They would like to encourage those with questions about homeowners, renters, auto or commercial property policies to visit their page, www.maine.gov/insurance, or call them at 207-624-8475.  For a list of helpful tips, click here.

Beware of New Phone Scam
 
There is a new phone scam targeting Maine phone numbers in which the caller claims the recipient has received an award from Maine's Department of Health and Human Services. During the call, the caller asks the recipient to pay $200 for an access code to get the award, which they sometimes describe as a grant. If you receive a call like this, please be aware that the government would not ask for your credit card information over the phone. If you have received a similar phone call, or have any questions, please contact the Office of the Attorney General Consumer Protection Division at 1-800-436-2131.
