As members of Maryland’s SAFE program – Stop Adult Financial Exploitation – the Association discussed the scams most commonly targeted toward seniors. CEO John Bratsakis also outlined options for account ownership and survivorship, advising attendees to carefully consider who has access to their money.

Attendees received a copy of the brochure, “What Account is Right For You?” The brochure was developed in collaboration with the Maryland Department of Labor, Licensing and Regulation, the Maryland Department of Aging, Office of the Maryland Attorney General, MD|DC Credit Union Association and Maryland Bankers Association.
