AARP fights for our veterans. In recent years, AARP has joined with veteran service organizations to help block proposals to cut Social Security benefits and veterans’ pensions. And AARP continues to monitor U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs rule-making.
AARP supports efforts to empower Veterans in communities across the country. It’s one of the ways we make life better for Veterans and their families.
