A Senior Citizen Age Varies among the Masses

     With so many baby boomers retiring, many people question when there are considered a senior citizen. A senior citizens age has traditionally been considered when an individual reaches the age of 65 now 66.  That's the magic number when full retirement kicks in and one can expect to start receiving a check while enjoying their golden years.  Many things put off during working years can now be pursued and enjoyed.

     Due to a healthier and more active generation the term senior citizen tends to leave a bad taste in many people's mouth.  More and more people are active and healthier today than ever.  With all the advancements in medicine and widespread availability of health care people are living a more healthier and active life.  Due to this increase in life expectancy, the federal government has passed legislation to have the retirement age increased to 67 by the year 2027.

     Still other government agencies mark 60 as the definitive date to qualify for housing and other perks.  The United Nations also defines 60 as the senior citizen status.  Either way, lifestyle choice and improved health care is redefining what is considered a universal senior citizen age determination.  Technical there is no set number when trying to decide what category you fit into at this time in your life.  For those that embrace the term senior citizen and all the perks it can hold as far as discounts.  My next post, I will try to provide you with a comprehensive list of discounts available for senior citizens and their spouses.  Better yet, I found this site that cover that subject very well called Free4Seniors.

  3. By contrast, METAS is an independent and neutral federal rolex replica agency, which, in theory, means that the watches and movements it has verified have received a federal rolex replica certification by the Swiss government. However, Omega has mentioned that even though the certification is offered by METAS, the testing will actually take place under Omega's roof in the interest of efficiency (and because at least as of rolex replica sale now we don't believe METAS has a facility to test watches - unlike COSC in Geneva). METAS will however be certifying the equipment used to do all the certifying. "In-house certification" using third-party certified machines and procedures theoretically rolex replica sale causes a rift in trust because the point of third-party certification is to be... well, replica watches sale third-party. Omega now has the duty to prove that even though though it will control certification internally, that it will adhere to rolex replica sale the strict policies and requirements set forth by METAS.
