More than 20 million people over the age of 50 are at risk of not having enough income to meet their basic needs. Work for Yourself@50+ makes it easy for older adults to explore their self-employment opportunities and increase their financial stability.
By 2022, 35% of the U.S. labor force will be 50 or older. And for many over 50, self-employment becomes a necessity as traditional job opportunities are scarce and the value of retirement savings continues to decline.
As a Work for Yourself@50+ partner, you will help AARP Foundation reach an underserved demographic and build economic opportunities for vulnerable older adults.
