Statement from Paula D. Cunningham, AARP Michigan State Director
AARP encourages honoring Black History Month as a time of learning, engaging in meaningful conversations and supporting Black-owned businesses.
“AARP Michigan applauds today’s action in the Michigan Senate to repeal the state’s retirement tax that for too long, has weighed heavily on an already financially vulnerable population in our state. Enacted through Public Act 38 of 2011, this tax blindsided Michigan retirees who unexpectedly saw their budgeted monthly incomes diminished. Year after year, millions of Michiganders who worked hard and played by the rules saw their retirement undercut by this tax, forcing many to go back to work or delay retirement. AARP has fought this tax from the start and today we turn our focus to the members in the Michigan House of Representatives who now have the opportunity to right this wrong once and for all. We urge those legislators – all 110 of them, to get it done and repeal this onerous tax. It’s time to make things right.”
AARP, the nation’s largest nonprofit, nonpartisan organization dedicated to empowering people 50 and older, announced today the priority issues on its 2023 Michigan Legislative Agenda. Approximately 3.9 million residents in Michigan are 50 and over, representing 39% of the state’s population.
