The webinar will focus on the benefits of appropriate collaboration between financial institutions and law enforcement regarding financial abuse of the elderly.

Additionally, the webinar will explore the unique challenges involved in detecting and preventing elder financial abuse, and will explain how Suspicious Activity Report filings can be used to prevent it.

The session will also cover Money Smart for Older Adults, a free resource developed by the FDIC and CFPB to raise awareness among older adults and their caregivers about how to prevent elder financial exploitation and encourage advanced planning and informed financial decision-making.
