NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) -- The Tennessee Bar Association has released a handbook to help the state's senior citizens better understand things like federal and state benefits and new health care laws.
The Legal Handbook for Tennessee Seniors was released on Monday and is available for free downloading at the bar association website. Printed and electronic copies on flash drives also are available from the bar association while supplies last.
