Benefits of the American Seniors Association

Two senior citizens have a discussion

Considered by many to be the conservative answer to AARP, the American Seniors Association, is the choice of many senior citizens interested in joining a group that provides information and services.

The American Seniors Association: A Brief History

Started in 2005 by founder Jerry Barton, The National Association for Senior Concerns gave individuals an alternative choice to joining the AARP. The organization, commonly known as NASCON, was aimed at conservative seniors with the purpose of representing their political and philosophical views and lobbying for their beliefs.

Within its first few months of operation, NASCON was recognized and hailed by:

  • Writer Brian McNicoll of The Heritage Foundation
  • Steve Forbes of Forbes Magazine
  • Newsman Sean Hannity of Fox News
  • publisher Drew Bond
  • Former game show host, Peter Marshall who is the honorary Chairman and spokesperson for the organization

As NASCON began to add services to its initial mission, the name was changed to the American Seniors Association, also called ASA.

The ASA calls its core beliefs on major key issues The Four Pillars. These issues are:
