AARP is a nonprofit, nonpartisan organization with a membership of nearly 38 million that helps people turn their goals and dreams into ‘Real Possibilities’ by changing the way America defines aging. With staffed offices in all 50 states, the District of Columbia, Puerto Rico, and the U.S. Virgin Islands, AARP works to strengthen communities and promote the issues that matter most to families with a focus on health care, financial security and personal fulfillment.
AARP fights for age 50 and over individuals and their families at the local, state and national levels. We work on important issues, such as:
- Leading efforts to update Social Security and promote other retirement savings efforts to help everyone achieve lifetime financial security
- Promoting adequate, affordable health care, including prescription drugs and long-term care
- Fostering communities with affordable and appropriate housing, as well as supportive community features and options for getting around
