State of Massachusetts secondary Archives: on Social Security

Charlie Baker: Make Massachusetts the most age-friendly state in the nation

Last spring, I appointed a Council to address aging. With a goal of making Massachusetts the most age-friendly state in the nation. The council has provided a platform to think beyond public programs and to draw on expertise in technology, health care, business & innovation.

We're pleased to announce that AARP has formally designated Massachusetts as one of only two age-friendly states in the country. We'll also be increasing state support for the Councils on Aging to the highest level ever.
