Protecting Our Senior Citizens

The People’s United Bank Master’s Program

At People’s United Bank, we understand the challenges that senior citizens face as they grow older and the importance of assisting in their protection.

The People’s United Bank Masters Program helps our communities stay informed through education and training about senior fraud, scams, and good safety practices to help prevent the victimization of seniors and ensure their well being.

The Masters Program is a collaborative initiative that promotes promote financial awareness and safety for senior citizens. Working with law enforcement, senior advocacy agencies, and businesses, the Masters Program provides educational programs, seminars, events and training in select communities.

The programs are designed for senior citizens and community members to help safeguard seniors from becoming victims of financial exploitation and other criminal activity. It also helps our community better understand and respond to the physical and mental challenges that may affect an older citizen and potentially increase their vulnerability to fraud.

The Masters Program was designed and is coordinated by Angela DeLeon, who has an extensive background in teaching safety to senior citizens. Angela is also on the Board of Directors of Connecticut Triad and on the Advisory Board for the National Association of Triads.
