So, I got a solicitation from AARP for life insurance. The cost is about 8x more than what I currently pay. The same is true with just about everything else they sell. I can only assume that they are preying on seniors that they supposedly "represent." I get that they are not for profit. But I can't help but think they are charging their members as much as they can to fund their agenda.

Bottom line, AARP does NOT represent me and never will.
ROANOKE, VIRGINIA -- I, actually, have had this plan, over a couple years. Overall, it has saved me a lot of money, as I'm chronically ill. But e-warning!!!

Since implementation of the Health Care Reform, many things are covered, only, by act of congress (every pun intended). If you are not willing to fight for each odd claim, and know your stuff, you will have troubles. Possibly regardless of insurer as all GPO my medicare guidelines.
ATLANTA, GEORGIA -- Called to see why they didn't pay a claim to my doctors office. Medicare paid their part and AARP Health Care did not pay anything. When I called the company they said that I would have to have the doctor's office send them the papers saying that Medicare paid them. I ask them to call the doctor's office I had the telephone number, but they stated that was not their job. I pay them for my supplemental insurance, and them don't want to help me. I'm going to look for another supplemental insurance company.3 Replies - Latest reply on 04/05/2012Add reply
I have had AARP United Health Care supplement insurance for six years. Each year the premium goes up. This year it jumped $12.00 although my SS benefits were not increased. My premiums are now $170.00/monthly and this does not include medicine. That's a big chunk out of SS benefits. I can't wait for our country's health care system to be improved. In the meantime, I'm shopping around for a better deal.3 Replies - Latest reply on 10/26/2010Add reply
My auto insurance increased by 8% this year. I have a 2007 Honda Odyssey. I'm thinking that because the van is another year older that the rate would go down. Wrong. I changed to AARP Hartford three years ago; every year they raise my premium. 2 Replies - Latest reply on 09/23/2010Add reply
I am so tried of AARP continually sending me applications for membership. They come with all sorts of names that are not mine, the latest being Goto Hell as the name.

I will never join a company that harasses people with unsolicited mailings that never seem to stop despite repeated requests to uncaring phone workers.
WASHINGTON, DISTRICT OF COLUMBIA -- On or about May 3rd, 2010, I joined AARP. In the material I received in the mail was a promotion saying that if I joined by a certain date, I would receive a Travel Bag. I have yet to receive it, and have emailed them a few weeks after, and again 06-22-10.
Since joining, I have continued to receive the same promotional ads on three occasions, the latest was today. A waste of money, hard copy spam.
I used my Bank of America Master Card for the first time in almost three years to renew my AARP membership. The next day there were hundreds of dollars of fraudulent charges on my credit card. I am lucky that Bank of America has a good fraud protection unit and I was notified immediately. I sent an email to AARP last week and got no response whatsoever. My credit card was in my possession and was not used for anything other than the membership renewal. BEWARE when using a credit card with AARP. They preach about protecting yourself and then they have security issues. 2 Replies - Latest reply on 04/20/2010Add reply
