Every year, senior citizens in this country are being swindled out of billions of dollars. In a survey conducted by the Investor Protection Trust, the Investor Protection Institute and the American Bar Association, 34 percent of lawyers polled said they are dealing with or expect to have senior clients who have been exploited.
A few years ago, the Investor Protection Trust released a survey that found that more than7.3 million Americans older than 65 already had been victims of fraud. And a recent MetLife survey estimated that seniors older than 60 have lost nearly $3 billion a year to financial abuse. And surprisingly, much of this abuse is not from strangers.
There are lots of scams targeting senior citizens, and according to the experts, some of the more popular ones are: prizes/sweepstakes, investments, charity contributions, loans and mortgages, health, funeral and life insurance.
Most elderly victims of financial abuse don't report fraud because they are either too ashamed, don't realize they are being duped until it's too late to get their money back, or their adult children fail to recognize the problem in time to intervene.
On today’s episode of Your Money. Your Matters, we’ll discuss the issue of scams against senior citizens and what can be done to protect them.
Your Money. Your Matters is a weekly show broadcasting every Tuesday from 11 a.m. to noon Central Time. The program features radio personalities Linda Webb-Mañon and Rick Grady, Cornerstone Credit Union League; Courtney Moran, Cornerstone Credit Union Foundation, and Todd Mark, Consumer Credit Counseling Services.
Do you feel like you need to BEG your partner, your parents or your providers for things you want?

Gray (or grey) hairs, seniors, old farts or whatever you want to call us are literally "Saviors of Governmental Budgets". That's right. Without us there would be no balanced budgets, as many community projects or infrastructure improvements. Remember that the next time you say, or hear someone else give disparaging remarks about the elderly. Jump "In the Pickle Barrel" and get the facts.
Each and everyday we will try to find a way to get out of the pickle barrel we have all found ourselves sharing.

Age is a major factor in health disparities because many older Americans exist on fixed incomes which often make paying for health care expenses difficult. Additionally, they may face impaired mobility or lack of transportation which make accessing health care services challenging for them physically. Too often, they may not have the opportunity to access health information via the internet, as less than 15% of Americans over the age of 65 have access to the internet, putting older individuals at a distinct disadvantage in accessing valuable information about their health and how to protect it. According to the American Medical Association, poor health literacy is "a stronger predictor of a person's health than age, income, employment status, education level and race. Groups with the highest prevalence of chronic disease and the greatest need for health care had the least ability to read and comprehend information needed to function as patients".
Health literacy as “the ability to read, understand and use health information to make appropriate health care decisions and follow instructions for treatment.”Many Americans face serious challenges interpreting basic information required to choose a health plan and understand their health benefits. Patients with low health literacy have great difficulty managing chronic conditions
