What age qualifies you as senior citizen?
No disrespect is intended, this a legitimate question. I saw something in the daily mail that said, "Gift Certificate to Senior Citizens ages 50 to 85." My mother was 51 and I honestly didn't consider her a senior citizen, she barely had any gray hair. I picture one as gray haired, glasses, walker or wheel chair, am I wrong? What age truly qualifies you as a senior citizen?
I guess it varies depending on place & source; I think it generally means 60+, but you can find "senior discounts" and "senior apartments" at 55+.
Oh ok, I was like wow, she missed the senior citizen discounts. She passed and I was just curious.
I just received notice saying my other comment was removed- why?
Idk, I can still see it. Must be a mistake. I voted you up actually.
According to governmental and societal consensus, when a person reaches 65 years of age, he/she is considered a senior citizen.
Ironic that this happened on my 40th birthday (true story) I went into Mcdonalds and ordered a coffee and was charged like 20 cents less than it should have been. When I looked at the receipt it indicated I was given the senior discount. I could only laugh as it was my "over the hill" birthday. Of course to any 17 or 18 year old, at 40 I must seem 150 years old to them.
ha, if u think that's bad, I received one of those telemarketer phone calls that said "You are now 40- so you need to know about funeral and burial insurance!" And then I started receiving ads from cremation companies. gah!
Welcome to the club Starmom41. Isn't there a saying though that says 40 is the new 30? Something like that
I've heard that; I guess companies looking to make money think we have one foot in the grave & they're ready to kick us the rest of the way in!
lol wow! omg here is a comment in red saying it needs moderation, leave it to hubpages. here comes mickey mouse.
It seems to be a marketing ploy. Ask anyone if they feel like a senior citizen, they are likely to answer no! I came across a couple while walking today appearing to be past the age of 70. As we talked I said something about age and being older. The gentleman immediately said to me: "We're not old!"
I think that "senior citizen" is a fairly general term, and can mean different things to different people. However, one thing that affects all Americans is when the social security administration considers you to be at "full retirement age". This is the age at which you can receive "full retirement benefits" (i.e. 100% of your benefit). For those born on or after 1960, this is age 67:
When you can take "Ho Ho" as an answer!
In Australia it's 60 years. However, we are tending to live longer and what used to be considered old at 70 is like 85 is today.
Even though it may different in different countries, I think one is considered as 'senior citizen' at the age of 60. The government giving some sort privilege
to this group of persons.
