questionshow are you going to honor seniors today?


Am I a qualified senior citizen? What is the minimum age to be considered a senior, legally? The Proclamation 5847 bill does not specify this important statistic.


Most Federal agencies regard age 62 as eligible to receive benefits reserved for seniors. Social security is different, I am talking about social programs.


@cengland0: Not sure of the actual age. ;-) You're only as old as you feel...blah, blah. I used to think 65 was considered a senior because that's when peope starting collecting Social Security. But you can get SS at 62 (w/a reduction). Also, people live longer now. If SS lasts (doubtful), I believe the age will be raised to 70.

Who's to say when you're really elderly or a senior? AARP = American Association of Retired People. Minimum age is 50 to join!?!?

So...whatever your age, celebrate if you wish. And please remember others who might be of a certain age, too!

In honor of the holiday, I promise not to knock any senior citizens down the stairs today.
But alas, I know I'll have to get back to the grind tomorrow.

Some interesting responses. Don't know why I was surprised, but I was. Guess I expected a bit more respect for seniors. And no, I don't think that all elderly people deserve honor - just like any other age group. I try (am not always successful) to respect all people. Have a special place in my heart for those who have been around longer than me. Always have felt that way...

Yes I know that some responses were meant to be humorous. Some were. :-D I sincerely hope that many are genuinely respectful of their elders - especially parents & grandparents. This is just one day...try, okay? ;-)

I just think honor seniors is what we should do.
