"Ensuring the protection and keeping the trust of our members drives all that we do at AARP."

"Based on Senator Grassley's letter we have launched a comprehensive review of the issues he raised. I have personally assured Senator Grassley that we are moving quickly to respond to his questions. We are also taking the following steps:

-- We are engaging an independent expert to review the marketing and sales

of the fixed benefit indemnity products and make recommendations as

warranted; and

-- AARP and United Healthcare have agreed that the marketing and sales of

these fixed benefit indemnity products will be voluntarily suspended as

soon as possible, pending the conclusion of our review. Current members

of the fixed benefit indemnity plans will continue to be served by the

program.

"We have extremely high standards for the provider products that carry the AARP name. No one cares more about helping people stay healthy and secure as they age than AARP.
