Elder financial exploitation has become the crime of the 21st century. 

In 2009, MetLife Mature Market Institute released a report stating that up to 1 million older Americans may be targeted yearly. The related costs (for health care, social services, investigations, legal fees, prosecution, and lost income and assets) for older Americans exceed $2.6 billion annually.

According to Investor Protection Trust, more than 7.3 million older adults--one out of five over age 65--already have been a victim to a financial swindle. 

Sponsored by NCOA's Economic Security Intiative, this webinar provides techniques and tools that can help you empower older adults and safeguard them from scams.

Presentations: 

Discover:

  • Current trends in scams targeting seniors
  • Current financial, mortgage, and health care scams
  • How, when, and who to refer your clients to for help
  • Introduce the National Consumer Law Center and National Consumer Protection Technical Resource Center as trusted sources for information to seniors
