AARP Ohio

AARP is working to improve the lives of all Ohioans.
We may be isolated, but we don’t have to be alone. AARP Community Connections is a new website that offers steps to find help – or give it – during the coronavirus pandemic. At a time when people are self-isolating, the website connects you to support in your community. It also enables you to join or organize your own online mutual aid group to stay connected, share ideas and help your family, neighbors and those most affected by COVID-19.

The spread of the coronavirus across our country has created a very stressful environment for all Americans and especially older people and those with underlying health conditions who are at heightened risk. During these difficult days, I want to assure you that AARP is actively engaged in our nation’s response to the outbreak, and we are working hard to help our members, their families and broader community understand how to protect themselves.

Some of the steps we are taking include:

AARP is a nonprofit, nonpartisan organization that has been working to promote the health and well-being of older Americans for more than sixty years. On behalf of our 1.5 million members and all older Ohioans statewide, we appreciate the demonstrated leadership and significant, bipartisan response to the coronavirus pandemic, as well as the ongoing efforts required as we move forward. As our Ohio leadership considers the next steps to address the various facets of this public health emergency, we urge them to continue to be especially mindful of older adults, who are most at risk from this disease.

Today is National Be Heard Day. Never heard of it before? I wouldn’t be surprised. It’s a relatively new holiday created to give small businesses a chance to be heard. While there are many ways small businesses and residents can celebrate this day, AARP Ohio is honoring it by raising our voices about the retirement crisis impacting small businesses and their employees.

One of the most common scams is government impostors, where you may get a phone call, an email, or a visit to your home from someone claiming to be from the Social Security Administration, the Internal Revenue Service or some other government agency. In fact, the Federal Trade Commission recently reported victims lost nearly $153 million to government impostor scams in 2019 – a staggering amount.

They pretend to be IRS agents or Census officials, someone on a dating site or even your grandchild telling you they’re in trouble. They’re impostor scammers—and they’re after YOUR money and YOUR personal information.
