TCAD CONSUMER FINANCIAL SURVEY
The Tennessee Commission on Aging and Disability is attempting to find better ways to both recognize and stop fraudulent and exploitative activities. Would you mind taking a few minutes to complete a survey? All answers are anonymous and confidential. TCAD wants to learn what practices are currently in use at banks and credit unions, as well as give you the opportunity to tell what you think might help prevent financial abuse. See more and take the survey at this link.
