Take Action in Your Community

Have Bay Staters earned their say?

The next President and Congress could determine the future of Medicare and Social Security. AARP believes you deserve to be part of the conversation.

As we look ahead to a busy season during a crucial election year, we want to make sure all Massachusetts residents have an opportunity to make their voices heard in Washington and on the campaign trail. To succeed, we need your help. Join us for an AARP Election 2012 Action Session in your community. Learn more about the pros and cons of various options currently on the table to strengthen Medicare and Social Security, and find out how you can get involved.

You’ve Earned a Say

Earlier this year, AARP launched You’ve Earned a Say, a national conversation about keeping Medicare and Social Security strong for today’s retirees as well as future generations. Since then, at public events and community conversations across the commonwealth, AARP is talking with residents about the options under discussion in Washington. The goal: to provide straight talk, minus the political spin, about the pros and cons of each proposal.

What's next for Medicare and Social Security?

Help make sure the future of Medicare and Social Security is decided in an open, public conversation. Visit for balanced information.

Then, take a few minutes to answer questions about what you think should be next for these critical programs.
