AARP Survey Finds Middle-Aged & Older Americans Struggling in Economy
Date:2/9/2009

on Middle-aged and Older Americans, provides an update to a survey conducted in April, 2008. Key findings from the AARP survey include:

  • 52% had trouble paying for food, gas, and medicine, while 45% had trouble paying for utilities
  • 31% thought it was likely they would lose their job in 2009
  • 55% are worried about being able to afford health care in 2009
  • 31% percent feared losing their health insurance in 2009
  • 9% had lost their jobs during the past 12 months (nearly double the rate from April 2008)

In Illinois, AARP is working to expand access to Medicaid to the 50-64 population -- one of the most underserved groups when it comes to access to health care -- and reform the insurance industry, so no one is denied health coverage during what are already difficult times for many people.

The full survey can be found online at: http://www.aarp.org/research/economy/trends/economic_slowdown_09.html.
