Bottom Line On The Senior Benefit Calls

These telemarketing calls you’re receiving from so-called “Senior Benefits” or “Senior Benefits Services” are attempts to get you to agree to learning more about final expense life insurance products approved in your state. 

These calls sometimes involve other products like term insurance and even burial plots and medical alert equipment.

The representative will explain that if you are interested in learning more about this plan, a local agent will call you back in a couple of days with more information. 

Understand if you agree to a call-back, you’ll either hear from a licensed insurance agent to discuss policy options with you over the phone, or you may even have an agent arrive at your doorstep unannounced.

Are these calls actually coming from a real life company named Senior Benefit?

The answer is no!

The calls you are receiving are not coming from a company named Senior Benefit (yes, there are actually companies named that and “Senior Benefit Services” that are real). 

Instead, these calls are from a telemarketing group that is identifying themselves as Senior Benefit Services, but aren’t technically operating as such, since they are call centers located internationally in places like the Philippines, India, and Pakistan.

The calls usually come from local numbers with local area codes. These are false numbers that are being used to trick you into answering the call. As discussed above, the calls are coming in internationally.

What can I do to prevent receiving the Senior Benefit calls?

To reduce or prevent receiving the false Senior Benefit calls, you may want to try one of the following: 

  • Register at the National Do Not Call Registry and choose not to receive telemarketing calls. This service is free and the registration never expires.
  • Sign up for a robocall blocking service with your carrier. Both AT&T, T-Mobile, and Verizon offer free services that you can sign up for to help reduce unwanted calls to your cell phone.
  • Download robocall blocker apps such as Hiya, Nomorobo, or Truecaller to filter the calls.
  • Download the AT&T Call Protect app to detect and block potentially fraudulent calls.

What should I do if I receive a Senior Benefit telemarketing call? 

No matter whether the call seems suspicious or not, you should never disclose any personal information to telemarketers. 

Don’t engage in conversation and make it clear that you don’t wish to be contacted in the future. 

If you continue to receive telemarketing calls after your phone number has been in the National Do Not Call Registry for more than 30 days, you can file a complaint.

You can also report scam calls to the National Consumers League Fraud Center, the Federal Trade Commission and/or the Federal Communications Commission.
