Elder financial abuse is a crime. It involves the wrongful taking of money or property, whether through fraud, scams, predatory caretakers or family, or others. An estimated $2.9 billion is stolen annually from elders. You can learn to protect yourself and those you love.
Elder Financial Protection Network works to prevent the financial abuse of elders through innovative partnerships that build public awareness, drive community outreach, and provide professional training. EFPN provides a critical link between financial institutions, law enforcement, community-based organizations and aging services providers in the effort to prevent elder financial exploitation in California.
