June recap - protecting seniors from financial abuse

When it comes to protecting seniors, collaboration is key. In June, ASC employees presented to legal and law enforcement groups who work with seniors to make them aware of what we do, the resources we offer and the ways we can work with them to combat elder financial abuse.

 

 

Our CheckFirst booth popped up at Calaway Park’s Grandparents Weekend, where we talked investor education with 800 grandparents, and treated the kids to games and cotton candy.

We also updated our consumer website with a new section dedicated to seniors, www.checkfirst.ca/senior. This page contains educational tools and resources for seniors and Albertans with seniors in their lives. After you read our educational materials, be sure to take our How safe is your nest egg? quiz before Friday, June 30 to find out if you are on the right track to protecting your financial future. Once you complete the quiz, be sure to enter our contest to win one of five great prizes!
