Every year, financial institutions lose more than $1 billion in deposits due to the exploitation of Americans over 50 years of age. A recent report from AARP and Virginia Tech reveals that the incidence of financial exploitation declines significantly with BankSafe training.

Financial institutions that can verify at least 80% of staff have passed the BankSafe training can apply to receive a seal from AARP, good for one year, recognizing their commitment to fighting exploitation.
