Thanks to everyone who took the time to reply to my question. I've about come to the conclusion that I don't agree with AARP's attitude toward Seniors and hadn't found enough about the other one to know if it serves Seniors any better. Sounds like every group except Seniors does have an organization to champion their causes.

Would be nice if there was a Seniors/Retirees web site where we could discuss all subjects including politics and who we believe would better back us in government. Wishful thinking I guess.

It all just sounds like more partisan politics to me. Personally, I belong to AARP, buy my health insurance through them, and enjoy many of their discounts.
That's fine. We all can and should make our own decisions. I believe, however, that many join AARP because of the advertizing and are not aware of the organizations non-insurance activities. I've talked to a number of AARP members who believed that one of the goals of the organization was to represent the constituency of seniors in governmental matters, as a lobbist group might. When they completed the research that I suggested, they changed their minds.

I'm all about truth in advertizing. That allows everyone to make an informed choice. The key word is informed.

Thank you, didn't realize there were that many web sites for Seniors. I'll try a couple of them.

Hi,
I don't have a problem with AARP and have been a member since I turned 55. Their discounts are great as well as their magazine and newspaper.

They also provide my supplemental hospital coverage which is super. I have also participated in some of their lobbists letters to watch out fof us Seniors.

I do not have auto or home owners insurance with them but considered them a few times.

All in all I can't say anything bad about them.

I was an AARP member for several years but dropped about 4 years ago when it became, in my opinion, a very political organization telling me who and what to vote for. I thought they were an organization supporting "retired peopel" and should be providing information to help members to make an informed decision.

I'm a member and they do not tell me who to vote for. Nobody does that. Unless, of course, you read tea leaves.

The rest of the discussion is not appropriate for the rules of this forum.

I will never, ever be an AARP member.
Exactly; read the forum rules and see what is banned (and it's not politics).

The purpose of my "agree" was to try and move the discuss off of AARP! AARP appeared to be a "Hot Button" issue with strong opinions on both sides. I never intended to offend anyone so if I did please accept my apologies!
