Managing Someone Else's Money guides
Authored By: Consumer Financial Protection Bureau
Millions of Americans are managing money or property for a loved one who is unable to pay bills or make financial decisions. This can be very overwhelming. But, it’s also a great opportunity to help someone you care about, and protect them from scams and fraud. Find information about Power of Attorney, Court-Appointed Guardians, Trustees, and Government Fiduciaries (i.e. Social Security Payees). The guides help you to be a financial caregiver in three ways: - They walk you through your duties. - They tell you how to watch out for scams and financial exploitation, and what to do if your loved one is a victim. - They tell you where you can go for help.
