About the Study:

The Oregon Center for Aging and Technology (ORCATECH) is recruiting participants for a research study to examine how financial behaviors change with age, and to learn about the relationship between financial behaviors and cognitive health.

As part of this project you will be asked to sign up for a personal financial monitoring service called EverSafe. EverSafe is an online service designed to protect seniors and their families from fraud, scams and financial exploitation by sending email alerts when irregular financial behavior is detected. ORCATECH researchers for this study will not have access to your financial accounts, but will receive information about alerts generated for you.

Purpose:

The purpose of the study is to examine how, or whether, financial behaviors change with age. ORCATECH hopes to learn if there is a relationship between financial behaviors and cognitive health.
 

What is Involved:

Participation in the study includes:

  • 1-2 home or virtual (remote) visits (up to 1 hour each)
  • 12 months of free financial monitoring
  • Completion of two study questionnaires and tests of memory and thinking

As a participant you will receive a personal financial monitoring service that was designed especially for older adults. EverSafe, the technology company that will be providing financial monitoring, will send you alerts if they detect any significant unusual activity in your accounts. Neither EverSafe nor OHSU has access or the ability to move your money, but OHSU will receive information about alerts generated for you.
