Protect Older People From Fraud
The National Credit Union Administration (NCUA) offers many resources aimed at helping older Americans protect themselves from fraud and manage their finances.
- NCUA’s Pocket Cents – financial literacy website with a section on issues older Americans face
- MyCreditUnion.gov – website with tips for handling personal finance and protecting against fraud/scams aimed at older adults
- NCUA video explains how older Americans are targeted by certain financial scams and ways to avoid being victimized
The NCUA has also partnered with AARP:
“Consumer protection and financial education are key parts of NCUA’s mission and part of the credit union model, as well,” NCUA Board Chairman Rick Metsger said. “Giving credit union members, particularly older Americans, the educational tools and security information to help them manage and protect their money is increasingly important, and I hope credit unions and their members will take advantage of the resources we offer.”
