AARP

American  Association  of  Retired  Persons  (AARP), nonprofit, nonpartisan organization that works to address the needs and interests of  middle-aged  and  elderly  people  in  the  United States. Its membership is open to all persons age 50 or older, whether working or retired.  It  is  headquartered  in  Washington, D.C. The AARP was founded in 1958 by a retired teacher, Ethel Percy Andrus, with the goal of helping  older  Americans  remain  physically  and  intellectually  active  by  serving  others.  In 1982 the AARP merged with the National Retired  Teachers  Association  (NRTA),  an  organization  that  Andrus  had  founded  in  1947 to obtain pension and health insurance benefits for retired educators. The AARP offers a broad range of service sand benefits to its members. Among these are a group health insurance program; special discounts on automobile rental, airline, and hotel  rates;  automotive  insurance;  a  credit  union; and pharmacy and travel services. It sponsors  community-service  programs  in  such  areas  as  crime  prevention,  defensive driving, adult education, consumer affairs, and the counseling of widowed persons. A program  on  retirement  planning  is  also  offered,  and  special  services  to  retired teachers  are  provided  through  the  NRTA. 

 

The AARP issues video programs and printed materials on various health topics and on other  aging-related  issues.  It  publishes  a bimonthly  magazine,  Modern  Maturity,  as well as the monthly AARP Bulletin. Volunteers implement most of the community service and  other  programs  through  the  local  chapters of the AARP. The AARP’s board of directors serve on a voluntary basis and are elected at a biennial convention.
