2018 Webinar - Elder Financial Abuse and the Senior $afe Act

When:  Aug 23, 2018 from 3:00 PM to 4:15 PM (ET)

With enactment of the Senior $afe Act, investment advisers and other financial professionals have received a measure of relief in their increasingly challenging efforts to protect senior clients whom they suspect of being victims of elder financial abuse. Financial professionals now have safe harbor from civil liability when reporting suspected cases of elder financial abuse to authorities – if they have received proper training from their employers.

A panel of experts will explore the latest legislative and regulatory developments and provide guidance on appropriate policies, procedures, and training in this area. Topics they will discuss include:

  • Elder Financial Abuse
  • Senior $afe Act
  • Adviser Policies and Procedures
  • Training
  • What to Expect from Adult Protective Services: State Issues
