2022 Annual Report

Stronger Together

Strength and unity. Those words characterized AARP Foundation in 2022.

Strength and unity. Those words characterized AARP Foundation in 2022. I have been genuinely moved by the sameness of heart that exists within this community of staff, volunteers, donors, and partners. A shared devotion to the work underpinned everything the Foundation accomplished last year.

Our staff wrapped up two years of remote work and connected in person once more. This was nothing new for the Senior Community Service Employment Program (SCSEP) team, who were back in the community mere weeks after things shut down, working with local partners, and providing in-person service to older jobseekers. For everyone else, however, stepping back into our offices felt like a homecoming.

Some programs continued to build on their established success, as they had done all along; others injected fresh ideas and energy into their offerings to increase their impact.

Our small but mighty legal advocacy team, who had spent two years pursuing their cases remotely, argued before judges in person instead of on Zoom, bringing the voice of older adults back into the nation’s courtrooms.

Our remarkable volunteers rejoined their classrooms, community centers, libraries and more, never missing a beat in the transition back from remote volunteering.

And our generous donors, who unfailingly stood by us all through the pandemic, came through as they always have for the older adults who need their support.

Because of all this, we were able to fight systemic injustice and help older adults seize opportunities to re-enter the workforce, bolster their budgets, give back to their communities, and recover from disasters. No matter when or how we came back, we were united in our purpose: to work even harder to achieve our vision of a country free of poverty where no older person feels vulnerable.

In 2022, we grew stronger. Together.

With gratitude,

Claire Casey, President
AARP Foundation

Seizing Opportunities

A robust U.S. labor market resulted in more job openings than available workers, and older jobseekers were keen to seize these opportunities. BACK TO WORK 50+ collaborated with more local partners and broadened its online services. Our Senior Community Service Employment Program’s sustained success led the U.S. Department of Labor, which funds the program, to award us two new grants.1 Not only were we able to continue administering SCSEP, but the new grants also allowed us to expand it.

through workforce programs — up 11% from 2021

Although both BACK TO WORK 50+ and SCSEP build jobseekers’ skills and confidence, we also saw a need for dedicated training to meet the demands of a labor market where digital skills are no longer optional. That’s why we launched the new Digital Skills Ready@50+™ initiative, which provides digital training classes for people over 50.

By extending the reach and impact of our workforce programs, we helped participants secure jobs and take tangible steps toward financial stability.

The BACK TO WORK 50+ program closed out its first decade with a new national online program, generating a 30% increase in overall participation by older adults with low income.

In addition to extending its geographic reach, the program delivered job search information and tools to 12,620 people, generating $16.2 million in new income.

Of the unemployed jobseekers who participated in our coaching programs, 40% landed jobs — and they did it, on average, just 16 weeks after starting the program. That is a significant contrast to the average of 27 weeks that most people 55 and older spend unemployed.2 What’s more, they reported an average wage of $21 an hour, which is about twice the average national minimum wage of $10.67 an hour.3

Guided by trained career transition coaches who hosted workshops in person and online, BACK TO WORK 50+ participants built the skills and confidence they needed to compete for high-quality jobs and increase their income in a fast-changing job market.

Digital Skills Ready@50+ Initiative

The Digital Skills Ready@50+™ initiative was created to meet a pressing need: digital skills training for people over 50 who are living with low income so that they have the tools needed to land good jobs that lead to long-term financial stability. The new initiative, launched in 2022, was made possible by a $10 million grant from

By providing training in the digital essentials, the initiative equips participants with the fundamental skills needed to navigate today’s digital world, including the labor market. It’s delivered mostly through community-based organizations (in-person, virtual, or hybrid) in collaboration with Older Adults Technology Services (OATS) from AARP, which is renowned for its curriculum tailored to older people.

In less than eight months, we partnered with 0 community organizations across eight states, including Arizona, Georgia, Illinois, Louisiana, North Carolina, Pennsylvania, South Carolina, and Texas

During that time our community partners trained 0 participants to use smartphones, Zoom, Microsoft Office, and social media for job searches as well as social connection

Senior Community Service Employment Program

For more than 50 years, AARP Foundation has administered the Senior Community Service Employment Program (SCSEP), funded primarily by the U.S. Department of Labor. SCSEP matches jobseekers over 55 with local nonprofit and public agencies so they can improve skills and build self-confidence while earning a modest training wage.

The decades of success we’ve had with SCSEP have brought the Foundation recognition as a national leader in tackling senior unemployment. And in 2022, our track record led the Department of Labor to award us two new grants that made it possible for us to expand our SCSEP service in Arkansas and North Carolina, resulting in 385 more training opportunities.

Thanks in part to this effort, the program served 10,855 older adults and generated $88.4 million in new income, representing a year-on-year growth of 10% and 14%, respectively.

It’s a win-win — both for the participants, who learn new skills, and for the communities, which benefit from more than 6 million hours’ worth of community service.

Bolstering Budgets

In 2022, record-high inflation sent prices soaring on necessities like food, fuel, and rent, disproportionately affecting older people with low income. The federal and state governments responded by extending policies and emergency programs to provide extra help, but older adults faced the same barriers that existed before the pandemic: stigma, misconceptions about eligibility, and cumbersome application processes, to name just a few. As a result, participation rates lagged.

AARP Foundation ramped up our efforts to help older adults gain access to public benefits, tax refunds, and credits that would help them bolster their budgets. We ran awareness campaigns to fight stigma and misinformation surrounding the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP) and Medicare Savings Programs (MSP), and we enhanced our technology and service models to reach more people.

Access to Benefits

Food Security

Having enough money to afford nourishing food gives older adults a much better chance of avoiding serious health issues. And yet, according to recent data from the USDA, only 47% of eligible older adults are enrolled in the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP) as compared to 78% of all people who are eligible.4 Research shows that the complicated application process discourages many older adults from applying for SNAP benefits.5

AARP Foundation circumvents that problem by funding community-based organizations that reach out to people over 50 who are eligible for the program and help them apply. On average, older adults in the communities we serve receive about $153 a month. That’s enough to cover a month’s worth of nutritious groceries, including eggs, dairy products, fruit, and vegetables.

In 2022, we helped 48,906 eligible older adults secure SNAP benefits — more than double the number we helped in 2021. All told, these applicants received $94.4 million in benefits. We also extended grants into 2023 for 14 organizations in states that have the Elderly Simplified Application Project (ESAP) in place, which streamlines the application process for older adults with low income and eases the burdens of reapplying.

Finally, we joined AARP last year at the White House Conference on Hunger, Nutrition, and Health, the first since the inaugural conference was held in 1969. AARP and AARP Foundation together made a commitment to research older adults’ access to SNAP, which we will use to improve enrollment rates.

Health Care

According to AARP’s Public Policy Institute, 1 in 10 traditional Medicare beneficiaries spent more than half of their income on health care in 2019.6 This type of cost burden can lead some to not seek the medical care they need.

In 2022, AARP Foundation funded community-based organizations that help older adults lower their costs by enrolling in Medicare Savings Programs (MSP) and the Part D Low-Income Subsidy (LIS) program (also known as Extra Help). MSP is a government subsidy program that aims to make Medicare more affordable for beneficiaries with low income by helping to pay premiums, deductibles, coinsurance, and copayments — and yet barely half of those eligible for MSP were enrolled in 2019.7 Similarly, just 60% of eligible older adults were enrolled that year in Extra Help, a federal subsidy program that pays for Medicare Part D prescription drug coverage.

Assistance With Tax Refunds and Credits

Our free tax preparation services reached 25% more older adults across the country, helping them secure substantial refunds, save significantly on tax preparation costs, and take advantage of 2022’s expanded eligibility for the Earned Income Tax Credit (EITC).

More than 20 million people over the age of 50 spend upward of 30% of their income on housing — and half of those spend at least 50%.10 Seniors living on low or fixed incomes are at risk of having to leave their homes because they can no longer afford rising property taxes or increased rent. With Property Tax-Aide's assistance, older adults can lower their housing costs and increase their ability to stay in their homes longer.

In 2022, Property Tax-Aide recruited new volunteers and started its first volunteer-led programming in Washington, D.C., and North Carolina.

Driving Long-Term Change

At AARP Foundation, we’ve long understood that there is no one path to ending senior poverty. Although last year we prioritized the immediate needs of older adults who struggled with the fallout from the pandemic, we also had our eyes on the future. We made a strategic shift in our intergenerational tutoring program to position it for long-term growth. And our legal advocacy team continued to fight for the rights of older adults, especially those without the resources to meet their basic needs, by winning important legal victories that help to pave the way for systemic change.

AARP Foundation Experience Corps

Experience Corps, our intergenerational tutoring program, gives older adults the opportunity to connect with their communities and to guide young students toward a life of economic stability through education. Though the program maintained a virtual option in 2022, making it possible to reach many more children in underserved communities, we also returned to in-person tutoring.

This allowed us to engage more tutors and students than we could during the pandemic, when schools were closed and tutors worked remotely with one student at a time. In addition, we shifted to a model that will enable us to deliver the program at a lower cost through partner organizations that are already embedded in their communities.

Legal Advocacy

AARP Foundation attorneys litigate at the intersection of aging and social justice. In 2022, they defended older adults from a range of abuses and rights violations, taking major steps toward our ongoing goal to bring about systemic change for the benefit of older adults.

A Win for Privacy

Several Yale University employees represented by AARP Foundation and other attorneys reached a settlement with the university in a case charging that Yale had unlawfully penalized employees who chose not to sign up for its wellness program. Participating in the program would have forced them to submit to extensive medical testing and reveal private health information, but employees who opted out were automatically charged $25 a week.

The settlement included a 0 million payment to cover employees’
attorney fees and other costs

The case was consequential because recent data indicates that some 48 million employees of large firms put their privacy at risk by participating in company wellness programs — whether voluntarily or by company mandate — because participation requires them to reveal personal medical information, often to a third-party vendor administering the program.11 The settlement included Yale’s agreement to no longer charge an opt-out fee for a specified number of years and a payment of $1.29 million to cover employees’ attorney fees and other costs.

Protecting Pensions

It’s estimated that about 1 million people with pensions from religious organizations have no federal protection.12 About 5,000 African Methodist Episcopal (AME) Church employees and retirees were stunned to discover that they were among them.

AARP Foundation attorneys joined a class action lawsuit on behalf of the employees and retirees, alleging that AME leadership and its retirement services department mishandled and lost nearly $90 million in retirement funds and violated the Employee Retirement Income Security Act (ERISA), which offers federal insurance to protect against the loss of funds. The lawsuit further charged that AME breached its contractual and fiduciary duties by not honoring a promised pension plan for pastors, elders, bishops, and other employees of affiliated colleges and seminaries. Court action is expected later in 2023.

We filed a class action suit against one of the largest nursing facility chains for older adults in Illinois

Represented by AARP Foundation attorneys and others, residents of six facilities in Illinois filed a class action suit against the Alden Group, one of the largest nursing facility chains for older adults in the state. The complaint alleges that Alden systematically understaffs its facilities, leading to dangerous and often grossly unsanitary living conditions for the residents. According to the complaint, Alden saves millions of dollars each year by refusing to hire sufficient staff to comply with legal staffing requirements and intentionally hiding it from regulators. The suit drew major press coverage, raising awareness of a widespread practice that jeopardizes the health and well-being of nursing facility residents.

Recovering From Disaster

In the fall of 2022, hurricanes delivered devastating blows to Florida and Puerto Rico. Hurricane Ian was one of the deadliest and costliest storms in U.S. history, leaving many older Floridians to grapple with devastating losses and harsh economic conditions. In Puerto Rico, Hurricane Fiona caused widespread and weeks-long power outages, destroyed bridges and roadways, and left entire communities under water.

AARP Foundation donors came through in a big way. Thanks to their generous support, and matching funds from AARP and AARP Foundation, we distributed $1.1 million in emergency grants to help older adults who lost their homes and their belongings. Through the work of our grantees (listed below), those who were affected are repairing their homes, getting legal assistance, and receiving financial support.

  • 2022 Legacy Society

    The AARP Foundation Legacy Society provides recognition to individuals who include AARP Foundation in their wills or living trusts; name the Foundation as a beneficiary of a retirement plan, commercial annuity, or life insurance plan; or make an irrevocable life income gift, such as a charitable gift annuity or charitable remainder trust.

    These exceptional gifts perpetuate the legacy of caring established by AARP’s founder, Dr. Ethel Percy Andrus, and allow us to serve as a force for change on the most serious issues faced by vulnerable seniors living in poverty.

    The names listed below are those AARP Foundation Legacy Society members who have confirmed both their gift commitments and their willingness to have their names published. On behalf of AARP Foundation, thank you to those listed below.
