Who is Considered an Eligible or Vulnerable Adult?
An individual, who you suspect is being financially exploited, is defined as an “eligible adult” if they are sixty-five (65) years of age or older or is a vulnerable adult. Vulnerable adult means an individual who is eighteen years of
age or older and who is unable to protect himself from abuse, neglect or exploitation by others because of a physical or mental impairment. (See A.R.S. § 46-451(9)).
Vulnerable adult includes an incapacitated person as defined in A.R.S. § 14-5101.
How Long is the Delay?
Qualified Individuals may impose an initial delay of disbursements from an eligible adult’s account for up to 15 business days if financial exploitation is suspected. The Securities Division or APS can extend the delay for an additional 10 days
