Spotlight Webcast: Poverty's Impact on Older Americans

ARRP WEBCAST from Spotlight on Vimeo.

More than 6 million people age 60 and over have trouble getting enough to eat. Older Americans are also facing serious financial problems and forced to live in poverty.

What's the latest official poverty rates for the elderly 65 and older? Why do 2/3 of the elderly who qualify for SNAP not filing for this program? What is AARP's Drive to End Hunger? What's the prognosis for those who are most vulnerable?

The new president of the AARP Foundation, Jo Ann Jenkins,  speaks with Spotlights Jodie Levin-Epstein to explore these issues and the solutions the foundation is targeting.
