ST. LOUIS (KMOX) - May is “Older Americans Month” the perfect time for the latest edition of Missouri’s Senior Citizens Handbook.

According to Jeannie Philips-Roth with Legal Services of Eastern Missouri, the 72-page guide is jam-packed with useful information.

“It covers areas of basic financial assistance,” she says. “This would include public benefits like the basics of Social Security and SSI, which is Supplemental Security Income, tax relief for the elderly, private pensions and age discrimination related to employment. It has effects on healthcare, which is very critical for people.”

To get an online or a physical copy of the new Senior Citizens Handbook, check out the websites for Legal Services of Eastern Missouri or the Missouri Bar.
