Malvern Bank’s "Money Matters"

Money Matters: We could use “a talk”

September 24, 2021

Hello,

Talking is one of the first things babies learn how to do - many within the first year of life. So, it stands to reason that the older we get, the better we would be at communicating, right? Sadly, that's not always the case. Getting older doesn't make communication any easier, especially to people near and dear to us.

Communication can be even harder when it comes to discussing sensitive topics like aging or finances. But the two Barron's articles below give great suggestions on how to facilitate these sometimes-difficult conversations, no matter which side you're on.

And like our parents say, it's for our own good! Setting aside purposeful time to discuss issues like long-term care and future planning can help to ensure another year doesn't go by without a little more peace of mind and better communication. If you need more accountability or ideas on how to get started, let's talk about it.

Another important topic to think about is protecting your identity from scammers. Every day, thousands of people fall victim to fraudulent emails texts, and calls from scammers pretending to be their bank.

Malvern Bank wants to help change that by participating in the American Bankers Association's "Banks Never Ask That" campaign. You can learn about protecting your identity from scammers by following the campaign on Malvern's Facebook Page @MyMalvernBank!

I'd love to know what you think about the articles below. Feel free to share with your loved ones to keep the conversation going.

Sincerely,

Anthony C. Weagley
