The Department of Attorney General will hold a public hearing to receive public comments on proposed  
changes to the Financial Exploitation Prevention Act rule set.  
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  
By the authority conferred on the Department of Attorney General under § 5(5) and § 5(6) of the  
Financial Exploitation Prevention Act of 2020. § 5(5) states that if a law enforcement agency or adult  
protective services receives a report of suspected or detected covered financial exploitation from a  
financial institution, the agency receiving the report must provide notification to the county prosecutor  
within 10 days of receiving the report. § 5(6) states that if a financial institution that makes a report of  
suspected or detected covered financial exploitation is unable to communicate with law enforcement or  
adult protective services or does not receive required follow-up notifications from law enforcement or  
adult protective services, the financial institution may provide notification to the county prosecutor. Both  
§ 5(5) and § 5(6) require that the manner of notification to the county prosecutor’s office be made in a  
manner prescribed by the attorney general. MCL 487.2085(5); MCL 487.2085(6). The proposed rules  
will take effect immediately after filing with the Secretary of State. The proposed rules are published on  
7/1/2021 issue. Copies of these proposed rules may also be obtained by mail or electronic transmission  
at the following address:  
Comments on these proposed rules may be made at the hearing or by mail or electronic mail at the  
following address until 7/7/2021 at 05:00PM.
