The three broad areas of concern are the right to an adequate income, the right to health care, and freedom from restraints on life, liberty, and property.
The handbook deals with the right of older people to receive the benefits promised by law: Social Security, Supplemental Security Income, Medicare, and others. It covers major laws affecting older people as well as court decisions and rules issued by the government agencies responsible for administering these laws. Because agencies such as the Social Security Administration and state health and welfare bureaucracies play a large role in the lives of the elderly, Brown and the Legal Counsel describe these units and show how to avoid pitfalls in dealing with them.

Robert N. Brown is Professor of Law at the University of Detroit School of Law and Director of its Health Law Center. The members of Legal Counsel for the Elderly represent older persons on a regular basis.From Library Journal:
These books, excellent "guides to the perplexed" about the intricacies of the what, how, and how much of Social Security, supplemental income assistance, disability benefits, and Medicare programs, complement each other nicely. Rubin's succinct summaries of the major features of these programs are followed by pithy answers to questions about coverage, eligibility, and benefits. Brown, covering the same ground in this American Civil Liberties Union handbook, emphasizes the rights of older persons to receive the benefits promised by these laws and shows how these rights can be protected under administrative procedures and the courts. He also discusses the civil service, railroad, and private pension plans. Both books are essential for all public libraries.
