Event Date: to

In response to recent changes by banks and other financial institutions, creating barriers for customers who wish to provide a signature for their purchases instead of a PIN, NNAAMI (National Network of Adult and Adolescent Children who have a Mentally ill parent/s. Inc.) has sent a letter to CEOs of financial institutions asking them to rectify and redress the situation.

This letter has been sent out on behalf of NNAAMI, COTA NSW, Physical Disability Council of NSW (PDCN) and People with Disability Australia (PWDA) and urges financial institutions to recognise that some people – primarily those with a cognitive impairment or physical disability – find the move to PIN-based cards unworkable.
