AARP Connecticut volunteers share their time, knowledge and experiences to create a state that can be a great home for people of all ages to live. They are advocates on legislative issues that affect families such as caregiving, financial security, independent living, health care, utilities and prescription drug prices. They offer valuable resources and information that help people protect themselves from fraud and scams, take charge of their life so they can live their best life now and in the future, in their job search or transition to a new career, and more.
