AARP History

AARP has 33 million members and was started as a quest to find health coverage for retired teachers in the late 1940s After opening a retirement home for teachers, Dr. Ethyl Percy Andrus needed policies for her residents. Shortly after establishing the National Retired Teachers Association (NRTA), Dr. Andrus procured the services of an East coast advocate named Leonard Davis.

In 1958, Dr. Andrus and Mr. Davis made the landmark decision to provide retirees throughout the nation with similar coverage. As of June 2013, Funding Universe declared AARP the second most popular group affiliation in America, taking a back seat only to the Catholic Church.
