    More Connecticut newspaper jobs are disappearing, this time, through buyouts.

    If you're now one of the estimated 5.3 million people in the United States without a job right now, take heart -- there's a service that can take health insurance off your list of worries.

    We bring you the Coverage for All website, courtesy of the Foundation for Health Coverage Education.  It's a nonprofit that has tons of information and tools.  You can also find the number for a hotline that can link you to dozens of free or low-cost health care options that will give you coverage until you get a new gig.

    One of the simplest tools is this super-quick, five-question survey, which will then give you a list of the public and private health benifits you may qualify for.
