How to manage money for someone else

-A A +A

Anyone who’s ever been asked to step in and manage their parents’ or someone else’s personal finances can tell you that it’s an awesome responsibility — and by “awesome,” I don’t mean “totally cool.” It’s more like “inspiring an overwhelming feeling of fear.” (Thank you, Dictionary.com.)
In recognition that millions of Americans act as fiduciaries (i.e., manage money or property) for loved ones, often with no formal training or expertise, the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau (CFPB) has created four, easy-to-understand caregiver guides called “Managing Someone Else’s Money” (consumerfinance.gov.)
CFPB Director Richard Cordray notes that there are 50 million older Americans — and millions of aging baby boomers are rapidly approaching retirement. Some 22 million people over 60 have already given someone power of attorney to make their financial decisions, and millions of others — including younger disabled adults — have court-appointed guardians or other fiduciaries. “In order to protect our seniors, we must educate the caregiver generation,” Cordray said.
