Find Sites for Seniors

One in every six Americans is a senior citizen, according to the Administration on Aging. Since 1900, the percentage of Americans 65 and older has more than tripled and their numbers have increased tenfold. By the 21st century, the number of seniors will double yet again. The following resources may prove helpful for senior citizens:

  • USA.gov
    A robust portal for government resources useful to seniors. You'll find information on consumer protection, education, health, taxes and travel.

  • Social Security Administration
    Learn about what benefits you are eligible to collect. The site offers a Benefits Planner, disability information and a schedule of payments. You can even apply online for benefits, estimate your retirement benefits and get your Social Security Statement. If you have questions, you'll find a e-mail form to contact the SSA directly.




  • Benefits Check Up
    Take the survey to see what federal and state assistance programs you are eligible for.

  • Resource Directory for Older People
    Directory of online resources.

  • Medicare
    The nation's largest health insurance program. Medicare provides health insurance to people age 65 and over, those who have permanent kidney failure and some individuals with disabilities.

  • Nursing Home Overview
    Compare nursing homes based on their last inspection.

  • Administration on Aging
    A federal agency that has the single charge of serving the nation's 43 million seniors.

  • National Institute on Aging
    Science-based educational materials on a wide range of topics related to health and aging.

  • FDA: Information for Older People
    Information on a wide range of health issues including arthritis, cancer, health fraud and nutrition.

  • Pension Benefit Guaranty Corporation
    This government agency protects the retirement incomes of more than 43 million American workers. The site has information about the pension plans of private companies. Use the directory to find people who haven't collected their pension benefits.

  • freeERISA.com
    The Employee Retirement Income Security Act requires employers to file reports on pension plans with the government. With freeERISA.com, you can access your employer's report and connect with experts in the Benefits Forum.
