The AARP, the national advocacy group for older Americans, is being accused of age discrimination by a 63-year-old woman from Michigan.

Bonita Brady says the group passed her over for a series of jobs because she was too old, despite excellent job reviews.

She joined the AARP in Chicago in 1996 as a health representative. She also worked for the organization in Washington before moving to the Lansing office in 2007.

Brady says she lost her job in a reorganization and was passed over for nine vacancies. She sued last week in federal court in Michigan and is seeking more than $25,000.

A message seeking comment was left with AARP lawyer Julie Badel in Chicago.
