Senior Links

This section was added a few years ago when we discovered valuable information while researching senior resources. Of course, one indicator for “Seniorship” is the AARP card and then the messages in the mail announcing Medicare and Social Security initiation. And then there were questions about retirement….and then there were questions about IRAs…and on and on. So many decisions! We decided to organize the URL links and begin listing them for our friends. Thank you all for sending us messages about links that were not on our list. For now, copy and paste the URL into your computer address. Soon we will have direct hyperlinks for you to try.
