Public Policy and Action

Want to know what's going on with older adult issues at the National level and what you can do to help? Keep an eye on the National Council on Aging.   

The National Council on Aging (NCOA) was founded in 1950 as the first charitable organization in the U.S. that would provide a national voice for older Americans and act as their advocates in dealing with service providers and policymakers.[1] Headquartered in Washington, DC, NCOA brings together various organizations, businesses, and governmental organizations to work toward securing jobs, benefits, health, independent living, and active living among older Americans.[2]

NCOA provides a variety of services to older people and caregivers including Benefits Checkup, Economics Checkup, and My Medicare Matters.
