In case you’re wondering exactly what the AARP is, here’s a description of what they do, according to their website:
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 strengthen 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
Recent advocacy victories include saving residential consumers a combined $3 billion on utility bills in 2012 and 2013.
