Learn procedures to effectively report elder abuse to protect members and your credit union. Senior members who were once “diligent to the penny” can become impaired as the years pass. With their impairment comes an increasing risk of abuse, overreaching and outright fraud by strangers, care-givers and even family members. Credit unions witness events that look like elder abuse weekly, and yet constraints of financial privacy laws and fear of liability cause too many to hesitate to report suspected abuse to authorities.
If you suspect elder abuse, consider:
- What to say?
- To whom to report?
- When to report?
- How to report?
Are there any measures a credit union can adopt across its entire field of membership that will make it easier to report suspected abuse to trusted family members, social services departments or even the police? The answer is “yes”. There are ways to do your duty to your membership, without undue effort or risk. This webinar will teach you how.
