Older Adults

Older adults often have significant debt and reduced resources. Many older adults of color live in extreme poverty with few resources after enduring a lifetime of discriminatory credit, housing, and employment practices. Predatory lenders, aggressive debt collectors, scammers, and other financial exploiters drain the limited resources and assets of older adults. NCLC works to combat abusive practices, increase consumer protections, and challenge emerging financial threats to the economic well-being of older adults.
