June is Elder Abuse Awareness Month

Credit Union of Georgia is Committed to Protecting You and Your Loved Ones

As June brings the warmer weather and energy of summer, it also marks an important observance: Elder Abuse Awareness Month. This month is dedicated to recognizing and fighting the various forms of abuse that can affect our senior population. Elder abuse is a serious issue that affects millions of older adults worldwide. Credit Union of Georgia is committed to ensuring that you and your family members are protected. We believe in fostering a safe, supportive environment for all our members, especially our elders who are often the most vulnerable.


Understanding Financial Elder Abuse

Elder abuse can occur in various forms, including physical, emotional, neglect and financial abuse. Financial abuse, which involves the illegal or unauthorized use of an elder’s funds, property, or resources, is a growing concern. It can significantly impact the well-being and security of older adults. Scams, fraud, and exploitation can deplete a senior’s lifelong savings, leaving them in precarious situations.


Our Commitment to Your Safety

At Credit Union of Georgia, we take the protection of our members seriously. We have implemented several measures to safeguard you and your loved ones against financial abuse and other forms of exploitation. Here’s how we’re helping to protect our community:


  • Educational Resources
    We provide informative resources to educate our members about the signs of elder abuse and financial exploitation. By raising awareness, we empower our members to recognize and report suspicious activities.
  • Fraud Prevention Programs
    Credit Union of Georgia offers robust fraud detection and prevention programs. These programs are designed to monitor accounts for unusual activity and alert members to potential threats.
  • Secure Banking Practices
