The dictionary gives no specific age defining when someone becomes a senior.
To play in the Senior PGA tournament or join AARP, you must be at least 50.
Some restaurant discounts start at age 55.
You will qualify for SRC programs like Senior Meals and Senior Wheels at age 60. Medicare starts at 65.
At SRC we don’t set any age at which someone becomes a senior.
We are happy to help anyone in the second half of life.
Remember, being a senior is a status symbol.
You were hot stuff as a high school senior, so enjoy being a senior again. You deserve the benefits!
