VeteransAARP Supports and Honors Those Who Have Served

AARP understands the needs of our veterans and their families. From our advocacy efforts to our caregiving resources and other benefits, we address the unique challenges confronting the nation's heroes.


AARP Veteran's Experience




AARP fights for our veterans. In recent years, AARP has joined with veteran service organizations to help successfully block proposals to cut Social Security benefits and veterans’ pensions. Also, AARP continues to monitor U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) rulemaking.
