Home Federal Bank
225 S Main Ave.
Sioux Falls, SD  

With over 50 million Americans aged 62 and older¹, Older Adults are prime targets for financial exploitation both by persons they know and trust and by strangers. Financial exploitation has been called “the crime of the 21st century” with one study suggesting that older Americans lost at least $2.9 billion to financial exploitation by a broad spectrum of perpetrators in 2010.²

Awareness and prevention is the first step. This workshop, developed by the FDIC and Consumer Financial Protection Bureau (CFPB), will provide the necessary information on how to prevent financial exploitation and make informed financial decisions.

We will cover the following topics:
• Common Types of Elder Financial Exploitation
• Scams Targeting Veterans• Identity Theft
• Medical Identity Theft
• Scams that Target Homeowners
• Planning for Unexpected Life Events
• How to Be Financially Prepared for Disasters

Join us for this free educational workshop presented by Home Federal Bank!
