Avoiding Senior Investment Fraud: When to Get Help With Your Finances

You probably realize that, as you age, you will need help managing your finances and making financial decisions—but how do you know when it’s the right time? Although there is no set age for when you should hand over the reins, you can talk openly with your family now and start planning ahead. Here are some important items you should discuss together:

  • Who will handle your finances when you are unable to do so?
  • How will you determine when it’s time to hand over the reins?
  • How do you want your finances handled?
  • What kinds of assets and expenses do you have?

Keep in mind, of course, that the person you appoint to help you handle your finances should be someone you trust. Make sure that he or she knows how to access to your financial records and has current contact information for your accountant, broker, attorney, etc. Learn more with "Four Easy Tips to Protect Seniors from Investment Fraud" here.
