Get Plugged in Via Text Messages

Posted on 08/04/22

When you sign up to receive text messages, you'll get alerts and you'll be the first to receive breaking news and opportunities to pressure Congress or state lawmakers on key issues like health care, taxes, Medicare, and Social Security. You can also get information about a wide range of AARP activities at the national, state, and local level. You will never get promotional or commercial messages and we will not send more than a couple messages per month.
