Financial education placemats

The CFPB’s Office for Older Americans offers free financial education placemats for the general public to download or order in bulk.

These paper placemats include information printed on them that will help older adults avoid common financial scams. While they were originally designed in collaboration with Meals on Wheels America, the educational placemats can be used by community or faith-based organizations, financial institutions, or other groups in a variety of ways.

We created a companion resource with a brief lesson plan and information to reinforce the messages on the placemats.

Order or download the placemats
