The American Association of Retired Persons (AARP) is the top organization in the United States for older adults aged 50 and above. When you become a member, you can receive a range of benefits, from discounts, to travel services, insurance products, healthcare services, education, to name a few.
For low-income seniors, in particular, the AARP Foundation works with organizations and communities to help those who are unemployed, those who want to improve their financial situation, and even those who want to improve their literacy.
The AARP also seeks to promote social connections, protect seniors from discrimination through legal advocacies, and so much more.
