Benevilla is excited to host their next online “Educate with the Experts” interactive educational event during the COVID-19 pandemic titled “WAYS TO AVOID FINANCIAL EXPLOITATION OF OLDER ADULTS.”  The live tele-conference will be offered via Zoom on Tuesday, July 14th 1:30PM until 2:45PM. Expert presenter Aimy Edwards, Branch Manager of Washington Federal, will discuss ways to protect yourself and your loved ones from financial exploitation.

According to the National Council on Aging, while likely under-reported, estimates of elder financial abuse and fraud costs to older Americans range from $2.9 billion to $36.5 billion annually. Financial abuse is the largest form of elder abuse, and it is growing—learn to protect yourself and those you care about by attending this free seminar.

Tips on how to recognize, reduce and guard against the risk of elder financial exploitation will be discussed, as well as how to plan for unexpected loss of the ability to manage your finances.

To reduce the risk of public exposure, Benevilla has chosen to convert their popular education workshops into live stream, online video events.  Benevilla will use the safe, easy to use and intuitive Zoom audio/video conference platform to host these live presentations. It will feel like you are right there on our Surprise campus talking to our expert partners.

Benevilla will continue, for the near future, using the online format for the workshops. Upcoming workshops will cover a broad range of important topics from in-home care management and hospice to estate preparation and tax savings tips. Speakers are all carefully selected professionals who can answer your questions and provide guidance and resources you need to prepare for senior life changes especially during the COVID-19 pandemic.

Reservations are required. When you register for the event, you will be provided a secure link and password to attend via Zoom. Please call Benevilla at 623-584-4999 or visit to reserve your spot and be ready to provide a working email address.
