Aging in America is a guide to the possibilities and realities of getting old in the United States. Until early 2024, it was named Get What’s Yours, and followed the topics of my “Get What’s Yours” books on Social Security, Medicare, and health care. Adopting a more inclusive name allows me to also deal with pocketbook matters, how we use our time during our later years, the things that give our lives satisfaction and meaning, and the importance of staying engaged with life.

I value facts over opinions, including my own. As a journalist for more than 50 years, I am alarmed at the proliferation of “news” based on false information. You are entitled to your own opinions but not your own “facts.” I certainly have my own views, but include links to studies, reports, and articles that I believe are accurate. If I make mistakes, which of course I will, I invite readers to set me straight so that I can make corrections.

Free subscribers will receive limited access to posts. Working for free has never appealed to me.

Paid subscribers can read everything published here and are encouraged to share their views with me and others.

Founding subscribers get all content plus my commitment to answer their questions via email.

I maintain an aging FAQ at getwhatsyours.org, where my books are promoted. The latest edition of “Get What’s Yours for Medicare” will be released on Oct. 8. It’s timed to help with the most challenging annual Medicare enrollment season in nearly 20 years, which will run from Oct. 15 through Dec. 7.
