June is Seniors’ Month
The Financial and Consumer Services Commission of New Brunswick (FCNB) has launched a NEW WEBSITE dedicated to helping seniors prepare for their retirement and protect their savings.
The website launch coincides
World Elder Abuse Awareness Day
on June 15.
Some of the resources housed on the new website include tools and information to help:
- adults prepare for retirement with tips on the importance of estate planning and understanding common frauds and signs of financial exploitation
- families and caregivers learn how to help protect a client or loved one they feel may be vulnerable or showing signs of financial exploitation, vulnerability, or diminished mental capacity
- financial professionals understand their responsibilities when working with older and vulnerable clients
- New Brunswickers know where to seek help should they suspect an older loved one is experiencing financial exploitation
The website also features nine new videos on topics like choosing a Trusted Contact Person, the importance of estate planning and more. For a more interactive experience, visitors to the site can book a free presentation about frauds and scams targeting older adults and signs of financial abuse and exploitation.
