KEEPING YOUR FINANCES SAFE

The Cooperative Legal Service Delivery (CLSD) program and Seniors Rights Service are conducting “Keeping Your Finances Safe” talks in the following towns on the following dates:

Thursday September 6 - Club Bega, BEGA
from 1:30 – 4:30 pm

Friday September 7 – Uniting Church, EDEN
from 9:30 am – 12:30 pm

These events consist of 4 speakers talking on issues relating to how to avoid elder abuse.

A Financial Information Service Officer (FISO) from Centrelink will give a talk on your home and the age pension, including the effects on your pension of downsizing, selling your home for less than market value, entering into granny flat arrangements, borrowing money by using your house as security, and/or moving in to residential aged care.

A Solicitor from Shoalcoast Community Legal Centre will talk about things to watch out for when you help your family financially or when you move in with your family. She also will address what to do when you are being pressured to move out of your home.

A Solicitor from Senior Rights Service will discuss wills, powers of attorney, enduring guardianship and advanced care directives

An Advocate from Fair Trading NSW will discuss shopping rights and scams and how to avoid them.

There will be ample opportunity to ask questions. Tea and cakes will be served in the break, giving the participants a chance to talk one-on-one with the speakers.

People of all ages are welcome. These events are FREE for community members as well as community workers.

I would be really grateful if you would spread the word about these events through your network. I would also appreciate it if people could reply so I know how many to cater for.

If you have any questions, please call me on 0420 495 829

Kind regards
