13%Did you know that May is Older Americans Month?

According to the 2010 U.S. Census, there are 40.3 million older Americans – people who are 65 and older in the United States, which is 13% of the population. In recognition of Older Americans Month, which was first designated in May of 1963, USA.gov has highlighted several resources that seniors may find useful.

  • Economic Security for Seniors – Learn about reverse mortgages and job training; and find benefit programs to help pay for medications and other essentials (from the National Council on Aging).
  • Tips on Exercise and Healthy Eating – Get ideas for meal planning and safely increasing your level of physical activity (from the Weight-control Information Network).
  • Government Resources for Seniors Citizens – Find a wide range of resources for seniors on topics that include health, money, housing, and more (from USA.gov).

It’s never to early to speak to an elder law or estate planning attorney to learn how to best prepare for your family’s and your changing life needs. For more facts about older Americans, see these U.S. Census Facts.
