Almost everyone is familiar with the AARP, but it’s not the only choice out there. In 2005, Jeff Barton founded a competing institution, which came to be known as the American Seniors Association. With an activist agenda focused on Medicare, Social Security, and tax reform, the ASA is often viewed as the “conservative answer” to AARP. It provides a wide variety of services, such as insurance, an auto club, travel benefits, and discounts on prescriptions. Depending on your views, they may be worth giving a look.
