Tax season is over, and AARP Tax-Aide in Utah did another outstanding job helping low-to-moderate income taxpayers in the state file their taxes at no charge and on time!  This year, over 6700 returns were completed at 32 sites around the state by 106 volunteer preparers.
Do you know an extraordinary volunteer age 50 or older? Show your appreciation by nominating him or her for the 2015 AARP Utah Andrus Award for Community Service. The annual Andrus Award for Community Service is AARP’s most prestigious and visible volunteer award. It recognizes individuals who are sharing their experience, talent and skills to enrich their communities in ways that are consistent with AARP’s mission, vision, and commitment to volunteer service, and that inspire others to volunteer.
Happy family driving in a convertible car.
In 1979, AARP founded “55 Alive” to help keep older drivers independent, safe and confident while on the road. While its mission hasn’t changed since then, many other things have, including the program name.

Did you know AARP Utah offers a Smart Driver class at its state office?  These classes can qualify you for a discount on your auto insurance or auto assistance plans (for those who are 55+)  of up to five percent!  This is the program formerly known as Driver Safety, but on Jan. 1, 2014, AARP Driver Safety launched the new and improved AARP Smart Driver™ Course, the nation’s largest driving refresher course.   Although the course is geared to drivers age 50 and older, the course is open to people of all ages.  AARP membership is not required to take the course and there are no tests to pass.
