AARP's mission is to enhance the quality of life for all as we age, leading positive social change, and delivering value to members through information, advocacy, and service.
AARP works tirelessly to fulfill the vision: a society in which everyone lives their life with dignity and purpose, and in which AARP helps people fulfill their goals and dreams.
Advocacy: We stand up for our members and society as a strong nonpartisan advocate for social change. We work on the issues that matter, including strengthening Social Security and supporting other retirement savings efforts, promoting adequate and affordable health care, and fostering livable communities.
Community Service: We help our members and their communities help themselves. Caring and compassion are the bottom line of AARP. Our goal is to give people a voice, a sense of community, and a purpose through Create the Good and the AARP Foundation, through which members can contribute to those in need across the United States.
