SORT BY Relevancy
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?
Some people may be financially dependent, but the relationship should not create a posture of begging on your part. A respectful relationship built on love can be negotiated to where you feel heard and free to ask for your wants without a sense of fear, or the need to beg.

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.

How did being a senior citizen become associated with degeneration and uselessness instead of wisdom and leadership? In any other context, the word senior means someone who is advanced and respected in their field. We've developed a culture where senior citizens are robbed of their true identify - so much so that many seniors buy in to their very own dis-empowerment. Our guest, Veola Momom, is more than just a senior advocate, she is an example. At 71 years of age, Veola is moving, working and setting new heights for herself. She's dedicated to empowering senior citizens to bring forth their hidden treasures.
Her book, "OH MY ... I AM THE POWER!", is written to encourage senior citizens to clearly take back their identity and a guide to living a full and meaningful life.

Happy New Year! And welcome to the first new edition of the Pet Place Radio Show on KJAZZ, 88.1 FM. I hope you've enjoyed the last few “best of” segments we aired over the holiday season and that everyone had a wonderful couple of weeks. I’m your host, Marie Hulett, for those of you who are new to the show and I am thrilled that you've started off your day, and your new year with us. The tradition of the Pet Place is to promote pet adoptions from shelters and rescues, so this morning, I've invited Anabell Cabrera from Bichon Rescue of Orange County to stop by and talk about what her relatively new group is doing to match older dogs with senior citizens. She’s got some great stories that you won’t want to miss. Then, after our halftime break, our Producer Mike Johnson and I will discuss some dog training issues that he is having with Amber Good Dog. It's always fun chatting with Mike!
So what are you rebirthing, rejuvenating or resurrecting in your lifestyle. How has life changed for you and what chances have been presented to you? Have you adapted to change and become more resilient OR stagnated because of loss of youth or health? What are the profound effects of making decisions in the Third Act of Life?
Just because we are aging does not stop the need to be bombarrded with choices and decisions!
