You don’t have to pick up a phone or talk to automated machines that make most of us seniors go absolutely nuts (Remember when a person always answered a phone and directed your call accordingly, if they couldn’t answer your questions themselves? I truly miss that….).

Monthly News Letter

AARP monthly newsletter

One of the very best things about AARP is almost everyone knows who they are. Mostly, however, we just don’t realize how many services and types of assistance they provide.

They even have a FREE monthly newsletter that members can sign up for which has all kinds of great tips for us seniors. You’ll find entertainment, beauty and style tips, personal advice, online games and more in your inbox every issue.

How Much Does It
Cost to Join?

cost of AARP membership

Currently, membership is only $12 for the first year. $16 a year after that. If you start using the AARP discounts available to members, you’ll mostly likely save that in your first week or two. Yes, really. There are AARP discounts in so many places.

Are we trying to sell you a membership?


We’re tired (as we suppose you are too) of people telling us how great something is and then they want to sell you whatever they have so that they can make a buck. Right?

Hey, that’s the way of the world and there’s nothing really wrong with it if they are telling us the truth. It’s just darned annoying.

None of us here at get no commissions for our referrals to this great organization. We just want all our senior readers to benefit in every way possible. We want our readers save as much as they can on quality products and services. And, we want to help make sure you can find all the Senior Services Information and Assistance you desire.

At our commitment to you is that we try to find every way we can to make your senior years the best years of all.

AARP pays us no commissions or fees. They are just a great place for us seniors to easily find so much of the Senior Services Information and Assistance we seniors are looking for. And, we want to make sure you know about them.

Is this the only place we need to go to get everything we are looking for?

Probably not.

But, you can find most of the best Senior Services Information and Assistance here.
