Advocacy by and for People with ABI (Acquired Brain Injury)
Public Policy of the Brain Injury Network Policy dated 10-18-08
Banks and Other Financial Institutions: Banks and other financial institutions should be required by law to report any suspicious bank-related activity regarding their patrons when it is known to the bank that the patron is or may be cognitively impaired. This is a mandated reporter requirement. An example would be if a person without any professional credentials and unknown to the bank appears at the bank with a person who is clearly cognitively impaired and the third party seeks to be made a co-signer on the bank patronís account. Such an event would trigger the bankís responsibility to report said suspicious activity by the third party to the appropriate authorities.
