Helpful resources on the internet.

Summer 2009 Newsletter

This season, I shall focus on a slightly different approach to offering you information. When the internet first became fashionable, anyone under the age of thirty-five was immediately swept away by its seemingly limitless possibilities. Middle-aged and older folks were not so swept away. However, today, it has become apparent that not only have my middle-aged clients become adept at using the internet, but many of my clients in their eighties and nineties are now emailing me, attaching documents, and using the internet to make their lives easier.

With this I mind, and because we are embarking on those lazy summer days where no one really wants to think about tax planning or Medicaid eligibility or the changes in the power of attorney laws, I have compiled a list of various websites for agencies and service providers which I think might be helpful. Where possible, telephone numbers have also been included. I hope that you will review the list, save it, and find it useful in your own personal research.
