F&M Bank employees also spend several days in April visiting elementary schools as part of the American Bankers’ Association’s Teach Children to Save month. Teach Children to Save lessons involve stories and activities that are designed to meet educational standards in personal finance and reinforce concepts being taught in math, language arts and other disciplines.
The American Banker's Association also offers a financial program entitled Safe Banking for Seniors. Financial abuse against older Americans can take many forms, from illegal debits, to third-party scams and even unauthorized withdrawals by an approved caregiver. And with the share of the U.S. population 60 years and over projected to reach 30 percent by 2025, the opportunities to take advantage of these at-risk bank customers become more prevalent—by the minute. Through this program, employees present information in order to help senior citizens recognize scams and avoid identity theft.
