The FDIC offers these tips to help seniors protect their finances:

* Develop a spending plan, including ways to limit expenses. Consider new ways to cut costs.

* Think about turning a hobby into a moneymaker. For example, those who craft could consider selling items at craft fairs.

* Organize and protect important documents. Papers such as Social Security records, insurance policies, and brokerage statements should be kept in a secure place at home. Papers that aren’t accessed often can be put into a safe deposit box.

* Consult a financial expert who can answer questions such as how much money is needed to live on and how much should be invested.
