Ahead of the curve: A banker’s podcast episode 13 – Elder abuse

Elder financial exploitation and elder abuse: Statistics, FinCEN guidance, and how you can help

As the global population of individuals aged 60 and over is projected to increase by 38% between 2019 and 2030, elder abuse and elder financial exploitation (EFE) are becoming increasingly prevalent issues. This demographic shift, particularly in the developing world, brings attention to the unique challenges older persons face, including those related to human rights and financial security. Elder fraud, a severe form of EFE, continues to grow at an alarming rate. If it hasn’t already, it is likely to impact your client base or family in the near future.

In this episode, Abrigo consultants Melissa Mantooth, CAMS, and Elissa Brewer, CAMS, share their knowledge of prevalent schemes and red flags, as well as a brief overview of safe harbor lawsaround EFE that may impact banks and credit unions. As financial institutions educate their customers on fraud, it’s important that they keep an extra watchful eye out for scams impacting older clients.

Listen in for insights into ways to prevent elder fraud in your community.
