New State Law Aims To Protect Elderly

Indiana
Indiana

A new law takes effect July 1st that gives the state of Indiana more authority to protect older Hoosiers whose family members are taking advantage of them for financial gain.  The law is meant to help seniors fight back against more subtle manipulation that happens when a caregiver, friend or loved one uses intimidation—but not force—to gain access to money, credit cards or other resources. The Adult Protective Services Agency reported that in 2011, seniors were the victims in 1,300 cases involving financial exploitation. The new Indiana law allows for thousands of dollars in fines and other legal remedies for those found guilty.
