AARP meets with WV lawmakers


Charleston, W.Va. (WVVA)--AARP in West Virginia shares its goals with lawmakers in Charleston.

The organization would like to see increased funding for respite care services so patients can stay in their homes as long as possible. Another item on its agenda was state-based solutions to give workers more opportunity to save for retirement.

"Social Security is not enough to retire on. We want to make sure everybody in West Virginia has access to workplace retirement savings. We know that 45 percent of West Virginias don't have access to that right now, "says Angela Vance, State Director, AARP.

The AARP also supports tougher laws against people who exploit elderly residents by fraud, deception, and unfair practices.
