The Consumer Financial Protection Bureau is hosting a webinar Thursday, June 1, to discuss long-term services and support, including nursing home debt collection and financial caregiving.
The bureau recommends that carefully choosing a financial caregiver and making a plan for long-term care can help prevent elder financial exploitation. The session will also cover identity theft and fraud and how to protect older Americans from financial harm.
Webinar speakers include:
- Naomi Karp – Consultant, Aging, Law & Policy
- Lisa Weintraub Schifferle – Senior Policy Analyst, CFPB’s Office for Older Americans
- Moderator: Paul Greenwood – Former Deputy District Attorney in charge of elder abuse prosecutions, San Diego County District Attorney’s office
In advance of Thursday’s webinar, the CFPB has released an issue spotlight on Medical Billing and Collections Among Older Americans.
The bureau is also hosting a virtual field hearing specifically tailored to a discussion on “nursing home debt collections practices and the impact they can have on the financial well-being of caregivers, their families and friends,” ACA previously reported.
CFPB Director Rohit Chopra will host the field hearing, at 2 p.m. EST Sept. 8; the opportunity to sign up for testimony is available through the RSVP process.
ACA International encourages members to testify and RSVP to the event.
