Economic Empowerment for Seniors

Our workshops are designed to inform older adults about ways to prevent financial exploitation and manage personal finances.

The Office of Economic Empowerment provides free financial education workshops for senior citizens. Topics covered include money management, fraud and scam prevention, banking, credit, savings, financial recovery, and more!

In light of COVID-19, we are offering virtual workshops over Zoom called “Let’s Talk: Senior Fraud and Scam.” These sessions focus on avoiding financial exploitation during the pandemic and are available to any Massachusetts organization serving seniors. If you are interested in coordinating a workshop with OEE, please see below for details.
