AARP History

Michelle Obama and AARP card

The AARP (American Association of Retired Persons) was founded in 1958 in Ojai, California, by Dr. Ethel Percy Andrus.  After establishing the National Retired Teachers Association in 1948, Andrus decided to open up her organization to all Americans 10 years later.

The AARP is a non-profit organization dedicated to addressing issues that affect older Americans through lobbying efforts aimed at both state and Federal governments. AARP also provides extensive consumer information, volunteer opportunities, and events including the annual National Event & Expo.

AARP membership card  In addition to being active in healthcare related issues since at least the early 1960’s, the AARP, while not an insurer, it allows its name to be used by insurance companies in the sale of products, for which it is paid a commission. In fact, the group earns more money via commisions than it does from membership dues.

Many other groups, newspapers, and even politicians have been critical of the AARP, stating that they are masquerading as a nonprofit, while making billions selling insurance policies and high-cost membership fees.

AARP has headquarters in Washington, D.C. While it has only about 2,250 full-time employees, the company has more than 20,000 volunteers around the country.

I am President of Carlisle PA chapter 4377. I wrote several times with a question about AARP’S involvement in the elections in North and South Carolina elections. As of this writing I have heard nothing back. I am the president and I would like a response to such a easy question. Please let me know if AARP did play a role in these election with monetary payment or any support. Thank you.

My name is Richard Austin. I am a disabled American Veteran, former Air Traffic Controller and a recently retired pharmacist. I serendipitously discovered a significant amount of MONEY that belongs to your organization . The money needs to be picked up by AARP only.

This is real. I am not nuts nor a mentally ill crackpot. I am 100% serious.

Contact me via email, phone or text if interested in picking up YOUR MONEY. You have ZERO RISK and virtually NOTHING INVESTED except a few minutes of your time to allow me to prove it. If you don’t want the money, pick it up and give it to me, I’ll take it (just kidding).

Have a GREAT DAY. I look forward to hearing from you.

I have always Refused to “join” AARP because I was told that they are AGAINST GUN OWNERSHIP, and that MY Membership money would be used to help BAN GUNS. I want to know if this is correct? I suspect it IS, so I still will NOT give ANY of MY money to AARP unless someone can PROVE that they don’t use ANY of MY or THEIR Money to lobby against guns.
