A wealth of information for seniors has been put on a single website and it's up and running, the Government says.

Prime Minister John Key and Senior Citizens Minister Maggie Barry launched it in Auckland today.

"Superseniors pulls together in one place the wealth of information available for older New Zealanders online," Ms Barry said.

"It includes superannuation entitlements, finances, health and SuperGold Card entitlements."

Ms Barry says 61 percent of New Zealanders aged over 65 used the internet last year.

"With an ageing population which will see 1.2 million people over 65 by 2035, the number of older internet users is set to increase dramatically."
