**Abstract**

Recently, degenerate Bell numbers and polynomials were introduced as degenerate versions of the ordinary Bell numbers and polynomials. In this paper, we consider reciprocal degenerate Bell numbers and polynomials whose generating function is the reciprocal of that of the degenerate Bell polynomials. We investigate some properties for those numbers and polynomials, including their explicit expressions, recurrence relations and their connections with the degenerate Bell numbers and polynomials.
