Toolkit To Empower Seniors With Scam-proofing Savvy And Online Safety Smarts

 

Arming older New Zealanders with the skills and know-how to keep themselves safe online, is the focus of a new initiative launched nationwide by Netsafe today.

A joint project with Chorus, the Get Set Up for Safety programme includes a toolkit of free guides, videos, and other resources with practical advice on everything from fundamental online safety and security habits through to protection from financial scams and safer online shopping and socialising.

According to research conducted by Netsafe in 2023 as part of the Annual Population Survey almost half (47%) of over 70s expressed interest in learning more about online safety and how to protect themselves against scams. A similar number (49%) said they require assistance at least occasionally when using digital devices.

Senior sector organisations including Digital Seniors, Age Concern and the 20/20 Trust, who were consulted during the development of the toolkit, echoed this feedback, highlighting the need for better resources on these issues.

“The ability to identify scams and protection from financial fraud are key issues for seniors, however we also know older adults want more support and information so they can fully enjoy the benefits of the digital world,” says Netsafe Chief Online Safety Officer Sean Lyons.

“Get Set Up for Safety is designed to help seniors feel more comfortable and knowledgeable when they are online and to demystify the digital world for those who aren’t yet confident in the digital space, which is often due to concerns about safety and security.

Advertisement - scroll to continue reading

“Scams are understandably a top concern among older adults, so as part of the Get Set Up for Safety programme we’re introducing a new easy-to-remember acronym to help people recognise the red flags, SCAMS = Surprise, Control, Access, Money, Stop”.

The Get Set Up for Safety programme includes free printable guides, pamphlets and a series of videos covering topics such as:

  • Safe online shopping and banking
  • How to spot a scam
  • Social media settings and safety
  • Setting up devices securely
  • User-friendly device settings
  • Glossary of terminology

Hannah Taylor, Chorus Head of Sustainability says Chorus is very proud to support Netsafe’s important mahi on behalf of older adults in Aotearoa,

“This partnership has been driven out of a desire to empower people and keep them safe online,” she says.

“In an age where online safety issues such as scams are becoming hugely problematic and digital skills are a basic life necessity, it’s clear these resources are much needed.

“This mahi has been truly collaborative, with input from many different organisations who share a common goal of enabling older adults to embrace the benefits of the digital world”.

With over one million New Zealanders expected to age into the 65+ bracket by 2028 and essential services increasingly moving online, the programme fills an important resource gap for many public-facing organisations such as public libraries, community groups and charity organisations, that older adults often turn to for assistance with digital matters.

The Get Set Up for Safety resources will be freely available to access, download, or print out from the Netsafe website at www.netsafe.org.nz/olderpeople.

Printed pamphlets and other collateral will also be available nationally over the coming months, at public libraries, Citizens Advice Bureaus, Chorus community events, Digital Seniors hubs and Age Concern regional offices, among other locations.

Challenging Wills - the Family Protection Act

Family relationships have become more complex over the years.  As a result challenges to Wills have also become more common.  One way of challenging a Will is under the Family Protection Act 1955.  A spouse, de facto partner, child or grandchild of a deceased person is entitled to claim provision from an estate if adequate provision has not been made for their proper maintenance and support.  The Courts often refer to this as a failure of “a moral duty” on the part of the deceased person.  In rare circumstances, where a stepchild or parent was being financially supported by the deceased person they can also make a claim.

Claims are often made by adult children. A breach of moral duty is judged by the standards of a wise and just deceased at the time of his or her passing.  The Courts adopt a broad approach and each case is decided on its own particular facts.  Financial need and the health of the child making the claim are often the most important factors. However even if an adult child is in good health and in a good financial position they may still have a valid claim. The Courts point out that a child’s path through life is recognised in a Will not only through financial provision to meet financial needs but also to recognise a child as belonging to the family and of having been an important part in the overall life of the deceased person.

There are other factors which a Court will consider. The relationship which the child had with the deceased person will always be important. However the fact that a child was estranged from their deceased parent does not disqualify a child from making a claim. Sometimes the Court will find that it was up to the parent to be the “bigger person” and mend the relationship.

Grandchildren are not usually considered by the Court as requiring an award unless there are special circumstances such as their own parent dying before the deceased grandparent.

The Court is not restricted to particular considerations and must be aware of changing social attitudes over time. Due to the infinite variety of fact situations there can be no firm benchmark percentages for claims by surviving children. Where there is a large estate the Court is more likely to make a larger award. However where a child is well off and in good health awards are typically modest.

A person making a Will may wish to consider persons beyond family members. Bearing in mind that a Will is often the last message that a person will give to their loved ones careful consideration is required particularly if children are to be treated unequally. Written reasons often help in this regard.

There are other ways in which spouses, children and non-family members can challenge wills. As family relationships become more complex Wills need to be drafted to deal with those complexities. A carefully crafted Will by a lawyer can minimise the risks of a later challenge.

Visionwest and Christmas From The Heart

Visionwest Home Healthcare West Auckland is part of Visionwest Waka Whakakitenga, a trust that provides wraparound care for a wide variety of needs; one of these needs is food support.

As part of this support service, Visionwest ran Christmas From The Heart. Over 4,000 people, including over 2,200 children, received the food and gifts they needed to celebrate Christmas together. Through Manaaki Kai, Visionwest’s social supermarket, families chose their own food, gifts, and wrapping paper to ensure they had the sort of Christmas they would have otherwise missed out on.

On special note is that, of those receiving emergency food support from Visionwest, 10% are aged over 56 years. This number is rising as the cost-of-living bites into the finances of older New Zealanders.
