The 2014 Legal Handbook for Tennessee Seniors

Public education project provides information and resources for Tennesseans

The TBA Public Education Committee has updated The Legal Handbook for Tennessee Seniors for 2014. The updated Handbook contains practical information on a wide range of topics, including issues such as applying for Social Security benefits, long-term care considerations and estate planning, as well as completely new sections addressing online security and new health care legislation. An updated list of resources relevant for Tennessee Seniors is also included.

Copies are available now for download or by order in printed form. For more information about the project, to request a presentation in your area or to volunteer to help promote the Handbook,  contact TBA Access to Justice / Public Education Coordinator Liz Todaro

This publication is based largely on a previous edition of the handbook that was published and distributed in 2001 by the TBA Elder Law Section, the TBA Young Lawyers Division and the TBA Senior Lawyers Division. The TBA Public Education Committee worked this year under the leadership of Co-Chair Angelia Nystrom. The project was spearheaded by TBA President Cindy Wyrick, who identified this as a priority to help meet the needs of the growing and frequently underserved senior adult population in Tennessee.

Fortunately, there are many ways we can now distribute this valuable resource: via website download, electronic flashdrive or printed copy. The updated handbook is available (at no cost) to TBA Members via digital format for their use in counseling their clients. TBA Members are invited to add their firm’s logo and contact information to the Handbook cover for distribution to their clients. Electonic and printed copies are also available to the public directly from the TBA. This book promises to be a great benefit for the members of our communities and for the clients that we serve and all resources are available here on the TBA website and will be updated regularly.
