Senior Website

An innovative website, www.benefitscheckup.org, is helping seniors and their caregivers cut through the red tape of government programs. The program began in Chicago in 1992 and it was picked up by the National Department of Aging and went on-line in all 50 states late last year.

Just last week, the site launched a new prescription drug section to help seniors shoulder the high costs of prescriptions. It prescreens for 140 different savings programs.

You can also look for energy assistance, property tax savings, and even a program that discounts parking.
