Elder Financial Abuse and Fraud Prevention: Whose Job Is It Anyways?

It is estimated that older Americans lose a staggering $2.9 billion a year to an ever-growing array of financial exploitation schemes and scams. Senior citizens are often vulnerable to financial abuse due to isolation, cognitive decline, physical disability, health problems, and more. To complicate the matter, scammers are exploiting the fear and insecurity people are feeling during the COVID-19 chaos and preying on our nation’s most vulnerable population. Early recognition of abuse is the key. Credit unions are in a prime position to identify and help prevent financial elder abuse, but we need to know how to recognize the signs and how to act upon them.
