What is different about 50somethinginfo.com?
50somethinginfo.com will give you verifiable and sound information specifically relevant to our age group. It’s a directory for those of us who have tried to find answers to our questions by using the internet but have been frustrated at the amount of unhelpful or irrelevant information out there.

If you are 50 or better and want simply delivered and trustworthy information about medical or legal issues, money and finances, travel for seniors, political decisions, taxes, social security, aging parents, volunteerism, humor, the arts, shoes that fit, or even hobbies, and much more - we can give you answers.

Our goal is that you will never need to sift through ads, spam, sheer nonsense, or sites that "look like" the real thing but are really advertising, ever again. We accept advertising to keep our site free to our users, but you can be assured that our team searches the web, does the sifting for you, and delivers noncommercial, reliable, and trustworthy information you can immediately use. That’s our difference!

If you want to only search for an exact phrase, simply put quotation marks around your search terms.

Searches are NOT case sensitive, so all letters, regardless of how you type them, will be understood as lower case.
