Preventing Elder Financial Abuse

A recent study estimates that the financial loss by victims of elder financial crimes and exploitation is more than $2.9 billion a year with approximately 2 million seniors being exploited.  

Awareness of elder financial abuse is growing, and staff of Jeff Bank are often relied upon as the front line of defense in the protection of their customers, and as a provider of prevention education and information for elderly customers and their adult children. 

The “Preventing Elderly Financial Abuse Video” is used to educate family, friends, those in social organizations and the community at large on how to look for signs of elder financial abuse and how to prevent it. There is no need for taking extensive notes during the presentation because all the important “take-away” information is contained in handouts received during the presentation. 

Join us for this video presentation and Q&A sponsored by Jeff Bank and GOT (Growing Older Together) Wednesday, August 21st, 3:00pm at the Tusten Cochecton Branch of the Western Sullivan Public Library.  Registration Requested. For more information and to register, visit our calendar or call (845) 252-3360.
