In 2014, the North Carolina General Assembly took action to expand and amend the state's legal framework for addressing financial exploitation of older adults and disabled adults. As part of this, the legislature changed the processes available when a report of elder financial exploitation is received (per Article 6A of Chapter 108A of the General Statutes).
