This Population Policy Brief focuses on the victimization, costs of abuse and barriers to safety and recovery that older survivors experience. The Office of Violence Against Women defines older survivors as those over 50 years of age. This recognizes that older adults, who are largely past their reproductive years but are too young for services available to seniors, are particularly vulnerable due to a lack of programs and supports targeting this population. Most definitions of elder abuse refer to adults over the age of 60. Adults over 60 currently represent 18.5% of the US population and are expected to grow to 20.2% by 2050. This growing population is particularly vulnerable to physical violence and financial abuse. Abuse may not be recognized or evidence, such as bruising, may be dismissed as a symptom of old age or medication. And because older survivors often have fixed income and savings and limited access to help, perpetrators have significant power and control over survivors’ safety and well-being. While financial exploitation is a significant problem that affects many older adults, this brief will specifically examine the economic effects of intimate partner, sexual violence and stalking of older survivors over the age of 60.
