Financial abuse against older Americans can take many forms, from illegal debits, to third-party scams
and even unauthorized withdrawals by an approved caregiver. And with the share of the U.S. population
60 years and over projected to reach 30 percent by 2025, the opportunities to take advantage of these
at-risk bank customers become more prevalent—by the minute.
Join us in our pledge to empower customers and communities with the facts, tools and best practices
they need to bank more securely by participating in the ABA Foundation’s Safe Banking for Seniors
campaign. In January 2016, resources like event materials, lesson plans and media outreach tools will
be available to banks that sign up online.
Together, we can help eliminate the almost $2.9 billion lost annually to fraud against older Americans.
Safe Banking for Seniors
A campaign to educate seniors and their caregivers
on the risks of financial fraud
Ten thousand Baby Boomers turn 65 every day—and elder financial exploitation
is on the rise. Banks can do their part to combat the abuse by joining ABA
Foundation’s Safe Banking for Seniors campaign.
Free and open to all banks, the program’s turnkey materials—from presentations,
to handouts, communication tools and more—are designed to help bankers
educate their customers and communities on ways to protect themselves.
