Elder Investment Fraud and Financial Exploitation (EIFFE) Prevention Program
State securities regulators have joined forces with the Investor Protection Trust and the National Adult Protective Services Association (NAPSA), in cooperation with the American Academy of Family Physicians, the National Area Health Education Center Organization and the National Association of Geriatric Education Centers, to educate medical professionals and other caregivers about how to identify seniors who may be vulnerable to financial abuse.
The Elder Investment Fraud and Financial Exploitation (EIFFE) Prevention Program provides resources and continuing education for medical professionals who provide front-line elder care about how to refer at-risk seniors to the appropriate authorities, whether it is to report investment fraud to securities regulators, suspected abuse to adult protective services workers or symptoms of mild cognitive impairment to physicians.
