For the first step, you will need to open a browser like Internet Explorer or Safari, and navigate to the website. The web address is www.aarp.org. This will take you to the AARP landing page. From here you can explore some of the information about the organization, as well as create your account by clicking the word “Register” in the top right corner. This will open a new page with a short form that you will need to fill out.
Enter your email address. You will need an active and working email address in order to create an account with AARP.

The form will ask for additional information. One thing you will need to do is create a password.

Make sure you answer these questions accurately and honestly, since this can impact a great deal when it comes to offers and benefits later on.
The final step of the registration process is to change your username to something you will remember, and choose what you would like to subscribe to.

At the top of the welcome page you will see that you were assigned a username based on the information you entered into the form. You can choose to keep the assigned username, or you can change it to whatever you choose by clicking on the blue words “click here”. After that, scroll down a little on that welcome page and you will see a list of optional subscriptions. You can click on the ones that interest you, and you will receive most of those through the email you provided on the form.
