The number of Americans aging into poverty, without sufficient resources to meet their daily needs, is large and growing. Over 6.5 million Americans age 65 and over live in poverty. As the population ages and income inequality increases, this number is rising. As pensions have disappeared, more people will rely solely on Social Security for their retirement income. Approximately one-third of Americans have little or no savings. Women, people of color, and anyone who has experienced discrimination or spent their life working low-wage jobs are most impacted by this disturbing trend.

The need is great. And your support of Justice in Aging can have an impact larger than you can imagine on millions of lives. For 45 years at Justice in Aging we have used the power of law to fight senior poverty across the country. When the older adults in our communities lack access to healthcare or struggle for economic security, we deploy our cutting edge model of litigation and advocacy to stand with them and demand justice and dignity for all.

There are many ways to make a gift to Justice in Aging and join the fight against senior poverty. If you have any questions, please contact Shelby Minister (sminister@justiceinaging.org).

Cy-pres

Please consider Justice in Aging for unclaimed class action settlement funds under cy-près, which guides donation of these funds to an organization “as close as possible” in commitment to the betterment of the intended class.

In our mission to fight senior poverty, we advance the interests of low-income seniors and people with disabilities with special focus on access to quality health care and economic security. Within that focus, our efforts are concentrated on populations that have traditionally lacked legal protection such as women, people of color, LGBT individuals, and people with limited English proficiency.

For more information on directing unclaimed settlement funds to Justice in Aging, please contact Vanessa Barrington (vbarrington@justiceinaging.org).
