One-Stop Website for Seniors
Seniors, observe Older Americans Month by visiting a one-stop website just for you. You can change your address with the Post Office, compare nursing homes, request Social Security statements, get overseas travel tips from the State Department and find a variety of other government information. And, if you're not already getting Social Security, you can download software to estimate your own retirement or disability benefits.

Medicare Compare
Are you approaching 65? Are you younger than 65 with a disability? You need information on Medicare's health plan options. Check out Medicare Compare. It's an interactive database that includes detailed information on Medicare's health plan options. It allows you to "comparison shop" to find the plans that will work best for you in the state you live in.

U.S. State Department Has
Best Travel Advisory

In its June 1999 issue, Yahoo! Internet Life named the State Department's Travel Warnings and Consular Information a Gold Star Site. "Nothing ruins a vacation like ending up in a Turkish prison or coming home with a touch of malaria," Yahoo! reports. "Knowing what travel restrictions may apply where you're headed, along with basic medical and crime information, can help keep your trip hassle-free."

One-Stop Website for Students
Are you in college or on your way? This site is your first stop--and you'll come back many times. Plan for college and a career online. Learn how to apply for scholarships and financial aid, pay back loans, and budget your expenses. You'll find questions to ask your guidance counselor and answers about taxable income if you have a job. It has educational resources to help you master your studies--and recreation and travel resources when you want to take a break from the books. And, it's going to have more.
