Senior Safe Act -> PASSED!

Dear Friend,

On Monday, the House of Representatives unanimously passed Senior Safe Act, legislation we introduced with Congressman Bruce Poliquin of Maine to protect Arizona senior from financial scams. Our bill ensures financial institutions can work with law enforcement to stop financial abuse of seniors.

 


Recent studies estimate nearly 1 in 5 American seniors may be a target for financial fraud or abuse. Even when financial institutions suspect abuse, the crime may go unpunished because current law lacks the flexibility for law enforcement and financial institutions to work together effectively. By enabling banks, credit unions and other financial services providers to better identify and report financial fraud to law enforcement, the Senior Safe Act will prevent crime and protect Arizona seniors.

 

Seniors deserve to retire with dignity, and they shouldn’t have to worry that their hard earned savings are at risk of fraud. The Senior Safe Act is an important and responsible step to protecting those at risk.

I am honored to serve in Congress on behalf of Arizona families like yours. We always appreciate hearing from you on current topics and issues that are important to you.
