a nonprofit, nonpartisan national organization dedicated to "enriching the experience of aging"; membership is open to people age 50 or older. Founded in 1958 by Ethel Percy Andrus as American Association of Retired Persons, AARP now has over 30 million members, enabling it to act as a powerful advocate for older Americans on public policy issues such as social security and health care. AARP also distributes information on topics of interest to its members, sponsors community-service programs, and provides various services to its members. It publishes Modern Maturity and My Generation magazines and a members' bulletin.
