Post "Everyday Law for Seniors"
This newly updated book, "Everyday Law for Seniors," sounds like it might be a worthwhile reading. Here's a link to a short article on the book and a few excerpts from the article:

The Caregiver’s Bookshelf: A Law Guide for Seniors
By Paula Span
...
“Everyday Law for Seniors,” written by two law professors — Lawrence Frolik of the University of Pittsburgh and Linda Whitton of Valparaiso University — guides readers through the maze. The authors take on a variety of common topics (age discrimination, Social Security, housing, pensions, Medicare and other insurance) and offer clear, careful explanations and suggestions. First published in 2010, the book’s just been updated to include the most recent federal benefits numbers.

Julianne,
I'm interested in your opinion on this book, if you are familiar with it.

No, I'm not, Robin, but I would trust the recommendation of the chair of the ABA Commission on Law and Aging (according to the article).
