The purpose of this booklet is to provide financial and personal safety information to women age 50 and older who are hurt or controlled by a family member or by someone they love. Whether a woman chooses to stay in or to end a relationship, she may be able to take steps to protect her finances and property for herself and for other family members. This booklet briefly describes financial information and resources that can assist in financial safety planning and decision-making. This booklet was written for older women because women are harmed by family members in later life more often than men. Financial strategies for older women may differ from men because many older women stayed home during their childbearing years. Many older women do not have access to information about their family finances. They may not be aware of the benefits available to them and of their financial options -- and they do have options. The information in this booklet does not constitute legal advice.
