Financial elder abuse is simply, when an insurance company withholds money, or retains money, that belonged to the senior citizen. And if you have an insurance claim, you're due money. And if they withhold it in bad faith, that is also financial elder abuse. Many times, senior citizens can receive triple damages, if a jury finds that the claim was in bad faith and the person is over 65. This is kind of a new area of law. It isn't as well established as insurance bad faith. Financial elder abuse is just more recent, because the California Legislature has passed laws protecting senior citizens that are over 65, and has given them a special recognition. They should make sure they exercise their rights by seeing an attorney.
