2. Rule Set Information  
MOAHR assigned rule set number:  
2021-34 AG  
Title of proposed rule set:  
Financial Exploitation Prevention Act  
3. Purpose for the proposed rules and background:  
The purpose of these rules is to proscribe methods for notifying the county prosecutor of suspected or  
detected covered financial exploitation observed by a financial institution, as provided in subsection 5  
(5) and subsection 5(6) of the Financial Exploitation Prevention Act (2020 PA 344).  
4. Summary of proposed rules:  
MCL 24.242 and 24.245  
Agency Report to JCAR-Page 2  
The rules are designed to provide a standardized method for law enforcement, adult protective  
services, and financial institutions to provide notice of reports of suspected or detected covered  
financial exploitation made by financial institutions to the county prosecutor. The rules provide  
forms with a description of required content that shall be included in notifications to the county  
prosecutor and provide guidelines for financial institutions to determine in which county to contact  
the county prosecutor and how to obtain contact information for each prosecutor’s office. They also  
seek to avoid confusion when multiple law enforcement agencies receive copies of a single  
notification from a financial institution by requiring each law enforcement agency that receives a  
copy to make a report to the county prosecutor’s office. The rules are designed to create the least  
burdensome alternative for those required to comply, as the required notification forms are each only  
a single page which permits reports already required to be generated in the ordinary course of  
business by the agencies making the notifications as attachments.
