How to Cancel Your AARP Membership

We're Here to Help

We respect your decision to cancel your membership. Before you go, we want to make sure you're fully aware of the carefully-chosen discounts, programs and services you currently have access to - from travel, entertainment and insurance to fraud protection, health and advocating on your behalf for issues like Medicare and Social Security. If it has to do with enriching the lives of all Americans and their families, this is what AARP is all about.

What Happens to the Account?

The membership account will be deactivated, and we will send you a confirmation of your cancellation request.
