Financial abuse seminar planned

JCB will conduct a free panel discussion about financial abuse at 11 a.m. Sept. 9 in the fellowship hall at Immanuel Lutheran Church, 605 S. Walnut St., Seymour.

The goal of the panel discussion is to help raise awareness of how to protect oneself from financial abuse, what the warning signs are, steps to minimize risk, how to report it and an open question-and-answer period.

Panelists include Seymour Police Chief Bill Abbott; Peggy Brewer with JCB; Seymour attorney Denise K. Connell; John Defler with Adult Protective Services; Lora R. Mount, an elder law attorney; and Jackson County Prosecutor AmyMarie Travis.

Lunch is free, but seating is limited. Those who would like to attend may contact JCB at 812-522-3607, ext. 4255, by Tuesday.
