One in five people age 75-79 have mild cognitive impairment or dementia. This risk increases to one in two for people in their 80s. Research shows that even mild cognitive impairment makes it hard for people to manage their money on their own.

Although many people remain financially sharp as they age, it's smart to have a plan for whatever changes may lie ahead. The Thinking Ahead Roadmap will help you protect your money from scams, exploitation, and costly financial mistakes by choosing someone you trust to be your financial advocate.

Being in charge of your money tomorrow starts with planning today.

Amy made sure her parents paid their taxes on time, kept insurance policies up-to-date, and avoided late fees penalties.

Financial advocates can handle your money matters like paying your bills, repaying money you owe, applying for government benefits, managing property, filing insurance claims, paying taxes, and keeping an eye on your retirement savings.
