We Kindly Request the Pleasure of Your Company
Is there an older person in your life who’s worried about identity theft? Or perhaps you’re the one who’s worried about what’s happening with their identity? Either way, we hope you’ll join us at our upcoming forum, “Senior Identity Theft: A Problem in this Day and Age,” Tuesday, May 7, 2013, 9:00 - 4:30. You can come in person or join via webcast – all the details and the agenda are here.
Throughout the day, we’ll hear about topics that affect seniors. If someone’s personal information is available to financial advisors, caregivers, and other support professionals, is that person more vulnerable to identity theft? What happens now that the government is providing benefits on reloadable debit cards? The panel on tax and government benefits will discuss those issues.
The medical identity theft panel will talk about what’s happening in the health care arena, the impact of new laws, and best practices to detect, prevent, and remedy medical identity theft.
The first panel in the afternoon will talk about identity theft in the long-term care context, including nursing homes, assisted living, and in-home care. These panelists will explore the identity theft issues that come up, what can be done about them, and the challenges of helping seniors with diminished capacity.
We’ll end the day by talking about how to reach older consumers with education messages. Panelists will discuss with each other — and with the audience — how to find this audience, get messages to them, and convince them to listen (or even act).
We hope to see you there (or on the webcast). And we hope you’ll share your ideas, concerns, and experiences.
