Digital Money for Seniors

We share a data-driven guide called Digital Money for Seniors”.  It explores key facts and challenges faced by the elderly in a world increasingly accustomed to digital banking. 

This guide shares important insights such as:

·       How the rapid move towards online banking and digital services risks leaving older people behind.

·       The importance of digital inclusion and age-friendly banking to reliably meet the needs of the elderly. 

·       Great examples of industry initiatives that help teach and support seniors to use digital services.

·       Useful tips and advice to offer help to elderly relatives or friends when using smartphones and the internet.

Research found:

·       42% of over 75s (nearly two million people in England) weren’t using the internet and are still digitally excluded.

·       49% of people aged 55 and over said they weren’t confident using an app to apply for a credit card or loan.

·       Bank branches and cashpoints (ATMs), relied upon by many seniors, are disappearing at a rapid rate across the UK.
