  • Preventing Elder Financial Abuse

    Posted:

    Elder financial abuse robs older Americans of billions of dollars in money, property and other assets every year. As those safeguarding their customers’ finances, community bankers are key watchdogs for monitoring and preventing this abuse.

    As relationship lenders and financial first responders, community banks are in a unique position to help shield our elderly customers against these prevalent threats through employee training and the use of technology to spot red flags and report suspicious activity to authorities.

    First National Bank of River Falls takes proactive measures to prevent elder financial abuse by offering educational workshops that inform seniors about common scams and fraud tactics. They also provide personalized financial consultations to help elderly clients manage their assets securely. The bank employs advanced monitoring systems to detect unusual account activities and promptly alert their customers. Additionally, they collaborate with local law enforcement and community organizations to ensure a comprehensive approach to safeguarding the financial well-being of older adults.

    With World Elder Abuse Awareness Day happening on June 15, we wanted to provide our nation’s seniors and their family members with tips to guard against financial exploitation.
