Last year, scammers stole $30 million from Iowans. We need state legislators to step up to better protect us. AARP is advocating for legislation that makes it more difficult for scammers to take advantage of Iowans.
AARP Iowa worked with Republican presidential candidates to provide direct-to-camera, unedited responses to the question of how they plan to protect and strengthen Social Security if elected. Each candidate was given up to two minutes to offer their position.
AARP is here to help you take on today – and every day. From sharing practical resources, to holding fun activities and events, AARP is providing opportunities to connect and help build an even stronger Iowa for all ages to live, work and play. We hope you’ll join us!
For the first time since AARP began publishing the Scorecard in 2011, more than half of Medicaid long-term care dollars nationwide for older adults and people with physical disabilities went to home- and community-based services instead of nursing homes and other institutions.
AARP’s new Long-Term Services and Supports (LTSS) Scorecard finds that more than three years after the COVID-19 pandemic began, care provided in the United States for older adults and people with disabilities is painfully inadequate. The report finds that major gaps persist in Iowa, especially related to the options available to Iowans who need long-term care.
The Senior Planet Fellows is a pilot volunteer-led initiative to coordinate technology programs from Older Adults Technology Services from AARP (OATS). The program’s purpose is to ensure that best-of-class, locally relevant, technology-themed programming is provided to diverse audiences of older adults age 60+ who possess varying levels of digital literacy.
AARP has been fighting for 60 years — and will continue to lead the charge — to protect and save Social Security for current and future generations. If Washington doesn't take action and make changes to protect Social Security in the next decade, your Social Security could be cut by 20% - an average of $4,000 a year.
