New Jersey Bankers Association Financial Elder Abuse Webinar

Date Time: Jun 10, 2020 10:00 AM Eastern Time (US and Canada)
Topic: On-Line Webinar on Financial Elder Abuse

Financial Elder Abuse is a growing concern, with 4 million cases of elder abuse reported last year. The elderly are often bilked out of their savings, investments, and even homes by caretakers, family members, and con artists.

Attendees will learn about the signs of financial elder abuse and learn how to take action and prevent abuse for your customers and your community. Regulators will provide an update into elder financial abuse, and law enforcement will share insight into how to combat elder financial exploitation. Attendees will also learn how to prevent exploitation when competency is in question.

Mr. Vanarelli will speak on “Financial Abuse and its effect on Medicaid Eligibility.” This session will discuss the impact of financial exploitation of an elderly person on the victim’s eligibility for Medicaid and other necessary public benefits. When a third party makes improper transfers of the elder’s property without the elder’s knowledge or consent, will those improper transfers negatively affect the elder’s eligibility for Medicaid? This session will answer that question.
