Sometimes it pays to be old.
Few of us are actually looking forward to getting old and becoming senior citizens. But make no doubt about it, you will likely reach that status someday. At least there is one major upside to aging in America; senior discounts.
There are many companies that offer special deals for those who reach a certain age. There are some companies that give great deals for those who are aged 50 or older. Other companies start offering their discounts at age 55, 60 or even 65.
Taking advantage of senior discounts will reduce your retirement costs and free up cash for other activities. New York Medicaid Consulting, your Medicaid planning service, offers this list of places that offer a senior citizen discount.
