The future of Social Security — what’s changing and what you need to know about securing your benefits — is the topic of an AARP Utah University virtual workshop on Tuesday, May 7.
A recent AARP survey found aging in place is extremely important to 84% of Utahns 45 and older. Three in five of those surveyed say rising property taxes could impact their ability to remain in their home as they age.
For the first time since AARP began publishing the Scorecard in 2011, more than half of Medicaid long-term care dollars nationwide for older adults and people with physical disabilities went to home- and community-based services instead of nursing homes and other institutions.
Utah is one of only 11 states that tax Social Security benefits. But in an era of high inflation, people who are dependent on their Social Security income are looking for a break.
When the State Legislature convenes on Jan. 18, AARP Utah will be back to advocate for residents 50-plus, working to lower prescription drug costs, strengthen support for family caregivers and ensure that Utahns have access to retirement savings plans.
Reining in the high cost of prescription drugs will be a top priority for AARP Utah and its allies when state lawmakers reconvene on Monday, Jan. 27.

A MESSAGE FROM AARP UTAH AND THE UTAH HEALTH POLICY PROJECT ON YESTERDAY'S VOTE TO REPEAL AND REPLACE PROPOSITION 3
Proposition 3 was voted into law by Utahns last November, and will expand Medicaid coverage to 150,000 of our friends and neighbors, many of whom had no access to affordable healthcare coverage. But now this victory is in imminent danger of being repealed and replaced by the Utah legislature, which convenes next week.
