AARP is the nation’s largest nonprofit, nonpartisan organization dedicated to empowering people to choose how they live as they age. With a nationwide presence and nearly 38 million members, AARP strengthens communities and advocates for what matters most to families: health security, financial stability and personal fulfillment. These issues of concern and interest unite residents and play a predominant role in their lives. The focus and momentum for each of these issues is thriving in New Hampshire, which is recognized as one of the oldest states in the nation, with more than 500,000 people who are 50+. AARP New Hampshire has abundant resources for its 225,000 members. If you would like to learn more about what they do in the Granite State, visit aarp.org/nh for more information.
