9035802-portrait-of-the-old-woman-a-black-backgroundFight Back Against Financial Elder Abuse.If You Or A Loved One Has Been Approached By An “Elder Investment Advisor” Check Their Histrory and Licensing Status Before You Invest…

Financial Elder Abuse is a national epidemic. There are those consultants who claim to specialize in the financial needs of the elderly and who sell high risk or fictitious investment products.

According to the American Bar Association, one-in-ten Americans over the age of 60 fall victim to financial elder abuse. The exact number is expected to be much higher, since most financial elder abuse goes unreported.

If you have questions or concerns. Elders and their families are urged to contact their respective State Regulatory Agency to verify the advisors credentials and liscensing status:
