AARP  www.aarp.org

AARP is a nonprofit membership organization dedicated to addressing the needs and interests of persons 50 and older. Through information and education, advocacy and service, we seek to enhance the quality of life for all by promoting independence, dignity and purpose. Founded in 1958 by retired California educator, Dr. Ethel Percy Andrus, AARP (formerly known as the American Association of Retired Persons) today represents more than 35 million members. About half of our members are working, either full or part-time, while the others are retired. Nearly a third of our members are under the age of 60; those age 60 – 74 comprise 46%, and 21% are 75 and older. AARP is dedicated to enhancing quality of life for all as we age. We lead positive social change and deliver value to members through information, advocacy and service.
