Protect yourself and your family from becoming victims of elder financial abuse.
Information for this column comes from MetLife Mature Market Institute. In cooperation with Virginia Tech and the National Committee for the Prevention of Elder Abuse, MetLife has completed a study of Elder Financial Abuse — Crimes of Occasion, Desperation and Predation Against America’s Elders.
The purpose of this column is to increase awareness of elder financial abuse, symptoms, safety and what you can do to protect your family. I encourage you to read the entire study.
