  Program Update

Healthy Savings Program 

The Healthy Savings powered by AARP Foundation program ended 12/31/2020 and is no longer accepting enrollments. 

Can I still sign up for Healthy Savings?

Healthy Savings powered by AARP Foundation ended 12/31/2020, so, unfortunately, we are no longer accepting new enrollments. 

 AARP Foundation is committed to building a future without senior poverty where no older person feels vulnerable. We continue to research options to provide affordable healthy foods to low-income older adults.  

 Please visit AARP Foundation’s Local Assistance Directory to find help with food insecurity and other supports in your area.  


Why can’t I order the card?

Because the annual program came to an end on December 31, 2020, we are no longer accepting enrollments or delivering new cards.


Why doesn’t my Healthy Savings Card work anymore?

If you purchased a Healthy Savings card at any point in 2020, your enrollment term ended on December 31, 2020 and the Healthy Savings benefits are no longer available.

AARP Foundation’s Local Assistance Directory has an easy-to-use ZIP code-based search function so you can find help with food insecurity and other supports in your area.


How can I get help affording groceries?

Help is available to low-income families and individuals of any age through the federal Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP). As many as 40% of older adults who are eligible for SNAP benefits haven’t enrolled in the program. If you qualify, you will receive a card that looks just like an ordinary credit card, which you can use to purchase eligible foods at grocery stores and even some farmers markets. For help signing up for SNAP or to see if you qualify, visit AARP Foundation’s Local Assistance Directory, search “SNAP” and plug in your ZIP code.

You can find other forms of assistance in your area with other search terms, like “food assistance,” or simply by inserting your ZIP code.
