Stop Elder Financial Abuse Brochure

Publication Jenna Mills

The population of older Americans is growing at a significant pace, and financial abuse of elders and dependent adults is on the rise. In 2002, 250,000 cases of vulnerable adult abuse were reported in California, with approximately 40% identified as financial abuse.

To help bankers and consumers identify and prevent this abuse, the CBA has created a brochure that banks may provide to employees and customers. The brochure contains information on common elder financial abuse scenarios, tips to avoid becoming a victim and keys to identifying potential abuse.

The brochure is available at no cost for banks to print in-house or professionally. Click here to download the files for professional printing or click on the attachment for in-house printing.
