AARP is generally for persons over age 50, and their website, which is newsy and informative, focuses on issues of interest to senior citizens.

There are blogs and news items on topics such as travel, health, money, and politics. You can register for a free account and join the AARP online community. Chat in the forums (groups), follow discussions, or sign up for the newsletter in your email.

Click the link at the top of the homepage to see selected articles from the AARP magazine. Not all the articles are available online, but quite a few are there. Use the drop-down menu on the right to see past issues back to 2003. If you see something you like, you can print it or email it.

For more news articles, click the Bulletin Today link at the top of the homepage. Here you can get articles plus diversions such as sudoku puzzles. Use the "In Your State" link to get local information.

To get statistics and research information, click the "Research" link at the top of the homepage. The research section can be searched separately from the rest of the website by using the search box on the left. If you want to search the entire AARP website, use the box at the top of most screens.

Want to join AARP or renew your subscription? You can do that on their website as well. The link is generally at the top of the screen.

The link AARP Segunda Juventud takes you to the online version of their magazine with news focusing on issues facing Hispanics. Articles from the print version are searchable, and this website is also available in Spanish.
