MAY IS OLDER AMERICANS MONTH
Federal agencies across the country recognize May as Older Americans Month. Made official in 1963 by President Kennedy and the National Council of Senior Citizens, the title acknowledges the contributions of “past and current older persons to our country, in particular those who defended our country.” States acknowledge this designation by holding ceremonies, events, and programs focused on seniors.
The Consumer Financial Protection Bureau, for instance, has published a number of tools and resources that are designed to help seniors and their families. The resources are focused on financial caregiving, housing decisions, retirement planning, and online banking tips. These resources can be found here.
