It’s back to school season and for many parents and grandparents of college students, and that may mean looking for ways to help pay for school. Please beware of scholarship, financial aid and government grant scams. Fraudsters guarantee to award a scholarship as long as you pay an upfront processing fee for their services, but then you never see any scholarship money. To apply for true federal student aid, use the FAFSA, the official online form which is free to submit. Save your money and put it towards education instead.
AARP Minnesota and Pollen invite you to meet the 2019 50 Over 50 honorees — 50 Minnesota leaders over 50 who are writing their own rules about aging. These incredible individuals are making an impact in many ways—driving the engines of opportunity in the business world, creating art and helping others do the same, affecting change in their communities, and finding new ways to upend the status quo. Whether they hail from Edina or Elk Lake, Bemidji or Bloomington, Nevis or North Minneapolis, they're leaders in their work, and fighters against the tired stereotypes around aging. For the fourth consecutive year, we are proud to honor these leaders and recognize their significant contributions and achievements in their communities.
Hay una realidad que siempre está ante nuestros ojos, pero usualmente no le prestamos la importancia que merece. Y es que debe reconocerse el valor de las mujeres mayores como el eje de nuestros hogares y nuestra sociedad.

Al presente, esto significa que más de la mitad de los 1.2 millones puertorriqueños mayores de 50 años son mujeres.

While too many Pennsylvanians struggle to make ends meet, the big drug companies continue to rake in billions. From cancer treatments to Epipens, skyrocketing prices are forcing too many of us to choose between buying medicine and buying food for our families. While the average annual cost of prescription drug treatment increased 57.8% between 2012 and 2017, Pennsylvanians only realized an increase in annual income of 10.4%.1 It’s time to tell our lawmakers that we need lower prescription drug prices. When we all work together, policy change happens.
