Issues of Diminished Capacity - Is it Time to Take Away the Car Keys?

Maggie Kuhn started the Gray Panthers in 1970 as a response to her forced retirement at age 65. The mission of the Gray Panthers was to speak out against age discrimination, the Viet Nam war, and other political oppressions. There is no doubt that stereotyping due to age exists in contemporary society. The Gray Panthers call this kind of discrimination "ageism." To be told "you're too old" is as disheartening as to be told "you're too young"; both statements make you a stereotype when in fact you are an individual.

You're Getting Married - Now What?

Are you changing your name? Don't think we're only talking about the wife - some states allow men to adopt their wife's last name, and some states permit civil union partners to change their names. Federal agencies generally don't recognize name changes for men after marriage which means the man would need to go through a legal name change authorized by a court.

What is covered by FDIC insurance?

The Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation (FDIC) is an independent government agency and was created in 1933 during the Great Depression. Its purpose is to protect depositors in insured banks against the loss of their deposits if the bank fails. The current limit is $250,000 which was made permanent in the Dodd Frank Wall Street Reform and Consumer Protection Act which was signed by President Obama on July 21, 2010. The $250,000 limit is per depositor, per bank, for each account ownership category.
