Kentucky General Assembly & AARP Day at the Capitol 2024
AARP is making a difference in Kentucky – whether it’s fighting to protect your hard-earned Medicare and Social Security benefits, saving you money on your utility bills, or ensuring you can live independently as we age. Our local volunteers and grassroots activists from across the state will advocate on policy issues that matter most to Kentuckians 50-plus and their families. AARP Kentucky will be in Frankfort supporting relief for family caregivers who pay expenses out of their own pockets’ and fighting to prevent the financial exploitation of vulnerable adults.

Action Alert Act now to help us prioritize aging in the next state budget.
The state Senate is reviewing the next budget for the Commonwealth. Lawmakers in the House passed their version which will affect the well-being of all Kentuckians and especially older adults. We need your help to show support of appropriate priority funding for community services that are serving as a vital lifeline for older Kentuckians.

Now is the time for priority funding for community services that support our aging population. Older Kentuckians have contributed so much to our communities; now it’s our turn to ensure that they receive the care, support, and dignity they deserve.

Can we count on you to take action? Act now to ensure funding for older Kentuckians’ needs are maintained if not increased in the budget bill.

Get Involved & Take Action
We need your help to connect with lawmakers during the 2024 General Assembly to keep costs of living affordable and supporting the needs of Kentuckians 50-plus. Watch your email for more updates and details. You can help by monitoring the session and engaging your lawmakers in-person and remotely in support of AARP Kentucky’s legislative priorities. These issues include: lowering prescription drug prices, eliminating health care disparities, financial security in retirement, supporting unpaid family caregivers, increasing independent living options, and access to affordable high-speed internet for all Kentuckians.
