WHAT IF GRANNY WANTS TO GAMBLE?

BALANCING AUTONOMY AND VULNERABILITY IN THE GOLDEN YEARS

The nest-eggs of America's elders are in the cross-hairs of scammers and fraudsters who target elders (particulary women) due to the frailties and vulnerrabilities that often accompany again, This session will explore the challenges that advisors and lawmakers face un protecting these potential victims without unnecessarily trampling on their rights to self-determination.
