IRS Warns of New Phone Scam Involving Bogus Certified Letters

The Internal Revenue Service is warning people to beware of a new scam linked to the Electronic Federal Tax Payment System (EFTPS), where fraudsters call to demand an immediate tax payment through a prepaid debit card.

The scammer also tells the victim that the card is linked to the EFTPS system when, in fact, it is entirely con

Today is World Elder Abuse Awareness Day

Did you know that every day 10,000 people turn 65 in the US alone? That trend is going to continue for nearly the next 20 years.

A Better Way to Care for the Dying

A survey conducted by The Economist in partnership with the Kaiser Family Foundation demonstrates the huge gap between the type of end-of-life care people say they want, and the type of care they are most likely to receive. In a recent piece, The Economist explores these results and the momentum behind efforts to move beyond just fighting death to focusing on what matters most to patients. "The paradox of modern medicine is that people are living longer, and yet doing so with more disease. Death is rarely either quick or painless. Often it is traumatic. As the end nears, people tend to have goals that matter more than eking out every last second. But too few are asked what matters most t

New Medicare cards offer greater protection to more than 57.7 million Americans

New cards will no longer contain Social Security numbers, to combat fraud and illegal use.
