Financial protection for older Americans

Older Americans face many financial challenges as they age. They have opportunities to travel, explore new fields of work or hobbies, or spend time with family and friends. But often scam artists or bad advice take away these opportunities. Our information and tools help seniors navigate safely through financial challenges.

Learn how to prevent elder financial exploitation using the Money Smart for Older Adults – Prevent Financial Exploitation curriculum. Produced in partnership with the FDIC, consumers can download the resource guide or the training module for instructors. Hard copies of the resource guide can be ordered and shipped free of charge here.

Financial caregiving is also an important task that many take on suddenly or with little preparation.  The free, downloadable Managing Someone Else’s Money guides are available for agents under powers of attorneycourt-appointed guardianstrustees, and government fiduciaries (Social Security representative payees and VA fiduciaries). You can order free print copies in bulk here.
