Because of the Texas Public Information Act, these organizations have access to names and email addresses of current and former employees in order to send marketing or scam emails. Please note that active HISD 403b and 457b Plan approved providers and representatives will be affiliated with a company on the HISD Provider List. 

If you receive a suspicious email, do not open any attachments or click on any links. Simply forward the email to
