That’s a Wrap! AARP New Jersey 2023 Highlights

This year, AARP New Jersey helped put money back in your pocket by fighting to lower prescription drug prices and fighting to expand property tax relief. We also helped you get healthy and stay healthy and helped you protect yourself and your loved ones from fraud.

Here are some highlights by the numbers:

We delivered more than 600 caregiver stories to the Governor, Senate President and Assembly Speaker. The stories shared details about NJ residents’ experience caring for older loved ones.
Governor Murphy enacted landmark legislation to implement a new property tax relief program, StayNJ. The program, which will go into effect in 2026, is estimated to reduce property taxes for 400,000 New Jerseyans.
A new law that AARP NJ supported will set maximum out-of-pocket costs per month for insulin at $35, epi-pens at $25, and asthma inhalers at $50.
