AARP Foundation

Help Seniors Secure the Essentials

More than 38 million people over 50 are either already in poverty or living on the edge of it. AARP Foundation, the charitable affiliate of AARP, provides free programs and services that help older adults living with low income secure good jobs, get the benefits and refunds they’ve earned, and stay connected to their communities.

In 2022, the older adults we served received over $726 million in income, benefits, refunds, and credits. Thanks to the support of our committed staff, volunteers, partners, and donors, we’re helping seniors go from surviving to thriving.
