The American Association of Retired Persons (AARP) is known for its multiple perks and benefits that come with membership, and things just got a whole lot easier with the AARP Now app.
The nonprofit, members-only organization has roots planted in positive social change and assisting the elderly by providing resources and advice on healthcare, employment, and income security.
At the same time, AARP also offers its members numerous discounts and benefits ranging from travel to food and entertainment, according to its website.
