The American Association of Retired Persons has been advocating on behalf of adults over the age of 50 for decades, and their website provides a host of important information about their efforts and public outreach programs. From their homepage, visitors can access sections that include “Issues and Elections”, “Health”, and “Learning and Technology”.
After taking a look at a few (or all) of these areas, visitors would do well to continue scrolling down the site’s homepage to the policy and research area. Here they can read and download reports on the future of Social Security and Medicaid. The publications area also contains important content, including advice on financial planning and access to their in-house magazine. Keeping in touch with the times, the AARP website also has an issues blog that helps keep concerned visitors up to date with issues of interest to older persons. [KMG]
