During the search process, consumers can invite up to four co-browsers for assistance.

The Webby Awards give Official Honorees to signify "an outstanding caliber of work".

"We are very excited as there were over 10,000 entries submitted to the 13th Annual Webby Awards and only a small percentage of those were distinguished as Official Honorees," said Joppel CEO Kathy Feeny.

As the Baby Boomers begin turning 65 every eight seconds in 2010, these newcomers will join more than 40-million seniors shopping for the right insurance plan.
