The National Association of Attorneys General (NAAG) named Florida Attorney General Ashley Moody as its co-chair of its Elder Justice Committee.

Established in 2018, the Elder Justice Committee strives to assist state attorneys general in combating elder abuse and fraud through educational programs and resource sharing and development.

“Senior protection is one of my top priorities as Florida’s Attorney General, and I am honored to share our fraud-fighting strategies with my colleagues from across the country as Co-Chair of NAAG’s Elder Justice Committee and work with other states to develop innovative programs to further protect older Floridians,” Moody said.

In 2018, NAAG urged the U.S. government to change its policy so that state attorneys could use federal funds to investigate and prosecute a wider range of Medicaid abuse and neglect cases. In August of 2020, NAAG endorsed a bill that would amend the Victims of Crime Act of 1984 to include victims of senior fraud as eligible for reimbursement by the Crime Victims Fund for states that provide compensation to victims.
