What happens if I forget to respond to the Census?

This is where the door-to-door census taker will stop by your house and ask you to fill out the census. They can also help you fill it out if you need help. 

Also, please keep in mind that Census Takers, who are federal employees, may stop by to ask you some questions to verify they have a complete list of addresses for the actual census. 

REMEMBER: Census workers will never ask you about your social security number or bank account information!
