Medicare contributes $2.8 billion to New Hampshire’s economy, equivalent to 22% of state and local government spending in the state, according to a new report from AARP. Medicare also covers 260,598 beneficiaries in the Granite State. Older Americans have said Medicare is one of their top issues in the 2018 mid-term elections, and AARP New Hampshire is working to encourage voter participation this election season.
We all know Social Security helps families, but we rarely stop to think how much it helps the larger economy. In fact, Social Security fuels almost $1.4 trillion of economic activity nationally – and almost $6.6 billion right here in New Hampshire – according to a new study by AARP’s Public Policy Institute.
