Elder Law

This is a special section of our website just for elderly people and their family members, personal helpers or advocates. We cover everything from government benefits to housing to funeral contracts and much more.

Have debt collectors been contacting you? Are they calling at unreasonable hours, calling family, friends or your work? Have they used bad language or threatened you?  If so, they may have violated the Fair Debt Collection Practices Act.  Call the Consumer Law Project for Elders at 1-800-296-1467 to learn what you can do.
