Standing Up For Medicare
Protecting Your Social Security
How We Fight for You
Vigilance is Our Best Weapon
  • Medicare is a deal with the American people made a long
    time ago. Our goal is to protect that promisefor you and
    for future generations. We've launched a national campaign
    to fight proposals to turn Medicare into a voucher system.
    Doing so would dramatically hike costs for seniors and pose
    serious risks to all Americans paying into Medicare today.

  • Since AARP was founded 60 years ago, we've been fighting to protect and
    strengthen Social Security. You pay into Social Security, and you deserve to
    get the guaranteed lifetime benefits you've earned. We've successfully beat
    back Social Security privatization, and for the last decade, we've been fighting
    a proposal that would cut the yearly increase you get to keep up with your
    cost of living.

  • AARP is a nonpartisan organization. Our 38 million members
    come from across the political spectrum. As an association that
    represents all those people equally, we never endorse
    candidates or contribute to their campaigns. And, we don't have
    a political action committee. What we do is fight to safeguard the
    health and financial security of our members and their families
    as we've been doing since we were founded 60 years ago.
