A MESSAGE FROM AARP UTAH AND THE UTAH HEALTH POLICY PROJECT ON YESTERDAY'S VOTE TO REPEAL AND REPLACE PROPOSITION 3
Tax return forms and documents
State retirees paid into Social Security throughout their working lives and now count on it to make ends meet. What they don’t appreciate is having to pay state taxes on that vital retirement money. But Utah is one of 13 states that tax Social Security income.
VOTE YES ON PROPOSITION 3
Proposition 3, on the ballot this November, is an expansion of the Medicaid program, which is jointly funded by the Utah state and federal government.  If passed, an additional 150,000 Utahns will have access to affordable healthcare through Medicaid, and it will bring $800 million of federal tax dollars Utahns already pay back into our state to pay for the expansion.  The expansion will add approximately 14,000 new jobs, and this new economic activity will add $1.7 billion to Utah's economy.
Healthcare costs
State voters will decide Nov. 6 whether to extend health coverage to some 150,000 low-income residents by expanding Medicaid to people who exceed the current financial eligibility bar.
Advocacy highlighted in yellow
The legislative session that begins Jan. 22 is only 45 days long. AARP Utah is prepared to hit the ground running to advocate on behalf of family caregivers, retirees and other adults 50-plus. AARP staff and volunteers will be at the Capitol every day.
