AARP’s mission is to empower people to choose how they live as they age.
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
AARP also has an initiative called “Disrupt Aging,” which focuses on fighting agism.
