Computers and the internet are now very much part of everyday life. However, many older people are still not online. Learning to use a computer (or a tablet or a smartphone) for the first time can be a daunting experience but there are many benefits to using a computer, both financial and social. For example, you can use the internet to stay in touch with friends and family, order groceries, research information, pay bills and check your bank account.
