Late payments, Low Credit Scores: Predict Dementia?

  • New findings from Johns Hopkins: analyzed Consumer Credit Reports, track credit cards and loans for 19 years
  • 81,000 Medicare beneficiaries with Alzheimer's diagnosis.
  • Late payments showed up 6 years before dementia diagnosis.
  • Subprime Credit Scores (under 620) showed up 2.5 years before diagnosis.
  • Supports earlier findings: erratic payments, risky financial decisions, and fraud susceptibility also "red flags."
