Social Security is one of our nation’s most important programs, and ensuring Americans get the benefits they have earned is critical not only for 400,000 AARP Oklahoma members and their families, but all Americans. 24% of Oklahoma Social Security recipients depend on Social Security for 90% or more of their income. 49% of Oklahoma Social Security recipients depend on Social Security for 50% or more of their income. AARP continues to fight to strengthen Social Security and ensure that current and future generations receive the benefits they have earned and count on.
More than 524,000 Oklahomans care for older parents, spouses and other loved ones so they can live independently in their homes and communities. These unpaid family caregivers provide 488 million hours of care valued at a staggering six billion dollars annually, according to AARP Oklahoma, the nonprofit and nonpartisan advocacy organization for Americans 50 and older.

Medicare - Tell Congress to Protect Medicare
Congressional leaders' new budget is full of harmful cuts that would hurt older Americans. Medicaid would be slashed and seniors could lose access to food assistance programs. Perhaps worst of all, it would cut almost $500 billion from Medicare and open the door to turning it into a voucher program.
Utility Bill Money Picture
Empire District electric is asking the Corporation Commission to increase customer utility rates by $42 per month in the next four years!  How will they do that?  By phasing in higher rates, a bit at a time. The trick is, Empire will charge you for the full rate amount they didn't get in the first two years and make you pay it in year four, plus interest.  This amounts to $42 more per month on the average customer's bill.  That's $500 more in a year!
