The AARP Foundation Money Management Program is offered through agreements with state and local government and nonprofit agencies throughout the United States. A variety of agencies sponsor the program locally, including Area Agencies on Aging, Departments of Social Services, and senior centers.
A 2008 AARP survey found that 95% of clients were very satisfied with the assistance they received through the Money Management Program. Clients that received assistance reported improved piece of mind, stabilized finances and help with solving financial problems.
The Money Management Program offers Bill Payer Service, delivered by volunteers, designed to help keep people independent and in control.
Bill Payer Service
Bill Payer volunteers provide checkbook balancing and bill paying services for people who remain in control of their finances but need some help keeping things in order. Some clients are served on a short-term basis, but the majority are served by committed volunteers on a long-term basis.
Over 85% of Money Management Program volunteers report that they are very satisfied with serving in these roles, and are helping their clients remain financially stable and debt free.
