WEBINAR: New Federal Law on Elder Financial Exploitation

July 19: Online

In 2017, TBA and the Tennessee Legislature made a huge push to ensure financial institutions had the tools needed to aid in the fight to protect our elderly and vulnerable adult customers from financial exploitation. Now, with the signing of the Economic Growth, Regulatory Relief, and Consumer Protection Act on May 24, 2018, the federal government is providing immunity when reporting suspected elder financial exploitation to federal, state, and local authorities. 
Each employee having contact with elderly customers, their activity, and documents is required to have training on identifying and reporting elder financial exploitation, including the signs of financial exploitation, and the legal requirement to respect the privacy of individual customers.

Part 1 is designed for the bank’s management team (9–11 a.m.)
Participants will gain a clear understanding of allowances and protections under state and federal law. This webinar provides free resources, guidance, and advisories from various state and federal government agencies and departments. FinCEN, the CFPB, FDIC, DOJ, FTC, and FDIC are all asking for banks to take a stand against elder financial exploitation.

Part 2 provides all training components (2–3:30 p.m.)
Learn what is required for immunity under the new federal law and information on the Tennessee law, which provides the bank with tools it may use to protect vulnerable adult customers. Participants will learn the state and federal definitions of financial exploitation, and the difference between a vulnerable adult and a senior citizen, and how it applies to the task at hand. 

After your bank has completed both parts of this series, the bank must
• Maintain records of program content
• Maintain records of program participants
• Ensure all new hires receive the required training
• Train all employees on procedures for internal (in-bank) reporting of suspected financial exploitation
