As a senior, you may be worried about how your age could affect the safety of your job. After all, many seniors feel like their age could make them more prone to injury or even put them at risk of losing their job. But we’re here to tell you that senior citizens still have the same rights and protections as everyone else in the workplace.
If you ever find yourself injured on the job, you can rest assured knowing that businesses have resources available to help. Most companies offer Workers’ Compensation Insurance which covers medical costs due to an occupational injury or illness. Depending on the company, this might cover lost wages and other benefits while you recuperate from your injury. Additionally, suppose you cannot continue working because of a work-related accident or illness. In that case, you may be eligible for disability benefits through your employer or the Social Security Administration.
At the end of the day, your age doesn’t matter when it comes to your rights in the workplace. Everyone deserves to be treated safely and get the support they need if an unexpected event occurs. So remember – if you ever face an unfortunate situation, know you have options.

Retirement can be hard for many, especially if you’re not in the financial position to retire comfortably. One important step during retirement planning is estate planning, and it should not be overlooked just because of money constraints. While estate planning can sometimes feel like a daunting task, it can become much simpler with some thought and understanding.
When it comes to estate planning when you’re broke and retired, the key is to consider your actual needs carefully. Are there certain possessions that absolutely must be passed down to someone else? Are there certain people who will require special care after your death? These are all important questions that must be addressed in the estate plan.
Why do mature job seekers need our services?
Several reasons mature workers are searching for full or part-time employment. Some individuals wish to supplement their retirement income. Others want to remain physically and mentally active. However, today’s economy has an ever-increasing number of retirees and displaced workers who must find employment to survive their financial situations.
How does Employment For Seniors work?
Employers who wish to hire mature workers post their employment positions on the EFS system. People 50 years of age and older and interested in employment can register at EFS by calling for an appointment. Clients are scheduled to meet with our qualified volunteer counselors and receive referrals to the posted companies based on interest, ability, and training. The client contacts the employer directly to apply for the position(s).
