CASC Updates

Meals on Wheels (MOW)

America’s seniors are lonely. And, as a nation, we’ve allowed them to fall into the shadows. Families are living farther away and neighbors are more strangers than ever before. We all have the power to help change that.

That’s why Meals on Wheels America, along with celebrity supporters, has launched the #RespectYourElders campaign to garner support for America’s aging population and raise awareness for the importance of honoring seniors nationwide.

The Benefits of CASC Life

One of the many benefits of living in a senior living community is the sense of belonging and friendship that residents experience.

Living in isolation, alone at home, does little to prevent depression. The community environment of assisted and independent living communities provides daily opportunities for socialization, education, exercise and physical activity, recreation, and relationships.

This lifestyle encourages seniors to enjoy life and provides companionship, support, and connections with other people who share many of the same experiences, helping to prevent depression.

It has never been easier to do business with us online. Often, there is no need to call or visit an office. Here are three of our webpages that can make your clients’ lives easier:

  1. They can create or sign into their personal my Social Security account to instantly verify their earnings, get future benefit estimates, or a benefit verification letter, and more, at www.ssa.gov/myaccount.
  2. Is your client ready to apply for retirement benefits? They can complete and submit their online application in as little as 15 minutes at www.ssa.gov/retirement.
  3. Our blog is the place to go for Social Security news. Encourage your clients to visit blog.ssa.gov and subscribe today.

Our online resources don’t end there. If your clients’ needs aren’t listed above, visit us at www.ssa.gov/onlineservices.

DON’T Fall Victim to a Scam

If you are a victim of a scam, don’t  feel embarrassed. Anyone can become a victim of fraud. The important thing is to report the scam immediately. Advise your clients to:

  • Stop communications with the scammer.
  • Notify financial institutions and protect their accounts.
  • Contact local law enforcement and file a police report.
  • File a complaint with the FBI Internet Crime Complaint Center (IC3) at www.ic3.gov and on the FTC website at ReportFraud.ftc.gov.
  • Report Social Security-related scams to our Office of the Inspector General at oig.ssa.gov.
  • Retain financial transaction information and records of all communications with the scammer.

Please share this information with your friends so they can help their friends, family, and community.
