Managing Someone Else’s Money

Millions of Americans are managing money or property for a loved one who is unable to manage bills or make financial decisions. These financial caregivers may be agents under a power of attorney, guardians of property or other fiduciaries. To help financial caregivers in Georgia, the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau’s Office for Older Americans has created easy-to-understand Managing Someone Else’s Money guides with information and resources specific to Georgia.
Join a free webinar on August 22 to learn more about these guides and how you can help people acting as financial fiduciaries for older adults and adults with disabilities.  Speakers include:
·         Natalie K. Thomas, State Legal Services Developer, Georgia Department of Human Services - Division of Aging Services
·         Becky Kurtz, Director, Atlanta Area Agency on Aging, Atlanta Regional Commission
·         Naomi Karp, Senior Policy Analyst, Consumer Financial Protection Bureau, Office for Older Americans
