What is the WV Alliance for Retired Americans?

We are a part of a unique national organization that was launched in 2001 by a coalition of AFL-CIO affiliated unions and community-based organizations dedicated to economic and social justice.

We work to create a West Virginia and an America that protects the health and economic security of seniors, rewards work, strengthens families and builds thriving communities.

What does the WV Alliance do?

The WV Alliance is a voice for retirees and older Americans throughout our State. Our goal is to educate, energize and mobilize seniors to make a difference through activism.

The WV Alliance fights for:

  • A strengthened Social Security system that will provide guaranteed benefits and protect families for life.
  • Health care seniors can depend on through Medicare.
  • Affordable and accessible prescription drugs.

How many members belong to the Alliance?

The grassroots engine that powers the National organization of the Alliance for Retired Americans is more than 3 million members-strong. And anyone who shares our mission is welcome to join for a membership fee of $10 per year.

Are there membership benefits?

Yes. Through the National Alliance for Retired Americans, members are eligible for important benefits designed to help stretch retirement dollars-benefits like discounts on dental and vision care, prescription drugs, car rental discounts, a motor club, a mortgage and real estate program and more.
