Mission

Justice in Aging is a national organization that uses the power of law to fight senior poverty by securing access to affordable health care, economic security, and the courts for older adults with limited resources. Since 1972 we've focused our efforts primarily on populations that have traditionally lacked legal protection such as women, people of color, LGBT individuals, and people with limited English proficiency.

Notes from the nonprofit

We lead efforts to shine a light on senior poverty. In 2014, we have been able to convince the US Senate to have a hearing specifically on the topic. We continue to use blogs and social media to educate policymakers, advocates and others that the problem persists and needs solving.

Charting impact

Four powerful questions that require reflection about what really matters - results.

We fight senior poverty so that every senior will have the opportunity to age in dignity.

Justice in Aging provides training and materials to thousands of direct service advocates a year, engages in advocacy at the local and national level, and utilizes impact litigation to advance the rights of low-income older Americans.

Justice in Aging attorneys possess unique legal expertise in the programs, systems, and services that low-income older adults rely on. We use our legal knowledge to fight for the rights of poor seniors.

In the 45 years we've been fighting senior poverty, we've won back billions of dollars in benefits for poor seniors, prevented harmful legislation from being passed, ensured that millions had access to the health care and long-term services they need to age in dignity and health, provided thousands of hours of free legal trainings and expertise to tens of thousands of advocates who have helped countless individuals access the benefits they are entitled to, appeal bad agency decisions, and more.
