AARP is a nonprofit, nonpartisan organization that empowers people to choose how they live as they age. On behalf of AARP, AARP Services Inc. (ASI) strives to be an advocate in the marketplace for the 50 and over population. ASI encourages companies to consider the role they play in affecting positive social change by building or tailoring quality products and services that help those 50 and over live their lives to the fullest. AARP and ASI regularly seek input from members; they also conduct research to identify which products and services would be of most value. ASI is responsible for looking into possible new offerings, performing quality control with regard to providers and monitoring the satisfaction of members who use AARP-branded products and services.
