AARP Foundation

More than 37 million people over 50 are either already in poverty or just one life event away from slipping into it. AARP Foundation, the charitable affiliate of AARP, provides resources so millions of older adults living with low income can secure good jobs, get the benefits and refunds they've earned, and stay connected to their communities. Our programs and services are available to AARP members and nonmembers alike.
