Top 10 Websites for 2009, Part 2

This is a continuation of the top 10 websites I think you will find most helpful for 2009!

4. Nolo

Another great site for age-related legal advice is Nolo.  Accalimed as the "best legal self-help site on the web" (Yahoo!), Nolo defines legal terms in simple common language, not legal gobbledygook.  This is where I take advantage of handy checklists and related articles in all aspects of law--and it's free!

CNN's Money has long been one of my web darlings.  Money 101 explains money in a way that even a 10 year old could understand and the spacing makes the text extremely readable.  For more difficult concepts, refer to the videos.

I head straight for the "Ultimate Guide to Retirement" for practical advice relating to investing, IRAs, work, health care, pensions, insurance, estate planning and Social Security.  Find out where and from whom you can get help.  Education yourself, make plans and put your worries aside.

When I was assembling my Boomer Search Engine, I repeatedly came across Caring Connections.  I found that the National Hospice and Palliative Care Ogranization (NHPCO) created its dynamic website to expeditiously drive caregivers and patients to the information they want so that they can make the best decisions given their circumstances.

The information is comprehensive and straightforward.  Find glossaries, checklists and organization tools.  Take advantage of downloadable brochures and fill out your free state's advance directive without delay.
