Senator Gillibrand introduces legislation to protect seniors from financial scams

Local News

Senator Kirsten Gillibrand was in town on Monday to introduce the Senior Financial Empowerment Act to protect the elderly from financial scams.

This new legislation, if passed, will make sure seniors and caregivers have important information regarding financial abuse.

This would include how financial abuse is reported – and a national hotline would be established to advise seniors.

Senator Gillibrand was also joined by advocates from Lifespan and the better business bureau.
