AARP New Jersey is engaging voters across the Garden State – and we want to know why you are voting on November 6th! Critical issues like Medicare, Medicaid, Social Security, caregiving, prescription drugs and financial security are all on the line. Tune in for our upcoming video series – Why I Vote – to see what’s bringing your friends and neighbors to the polls.
Government is broken. Politicians don't seek common ground. They cast insults instead of creating results. It's time for our elected leaders to put voters first and get to work. This November, critical issues like Medicare, Social Security, caregiving, prescription drugs and financial security are all on the line. AARP is urging all New Jerseyans to use your vote to hold politicians accountable and make them pay attention to the nation's most powerful voting bloc - the 50+.
AARP Foundation Tax Aide offers free tax preparation help to anyone with special attention to those over the age of 50 who cannot afford a tax preparation service. Since 1968, the volunteer-based program has helped nearly 50 million low- to moderate-income taxpayers. And we need you!
Over half of New Jersey workers – 1. 7 million people - do not have access to a retirement savings plan through their employer.  Programs such as Social Security are critical to retirement security but do not provide enough for an individual to depend on during their retirement. The average Social Security benefit for a 65+ family is about $19,000 a year, though on average older New Jersey families spend $23,000 a year of food, utilities, and health care alone.  The math is clear…..New Jersey families cannot rely on Social Security alone for a secure financial future.
