Event Description

The FTC brought together experts from government, private industry, and public interest groups to discuss the unique challenges facing victims of senior identity theft.  The forum included panels on different types of senior identity theft – tax and government benefits, medical, and long-term care – and also explored the best consumer education and outreach techniques for reaching seniors.
