There are a few major perks to aging, finally retiring, hanging with fellow retirees, gone fishing, traveling or finally having the time to follow your dream and take that bucket list dream vacation.
However, when living on a limited or fixed income eating out can be a concern for many Senior Citizens. But there are some little perks, like age-based discounts. When you think senior discount, you may think you have to be age 60 or 65 to be eligible. But there are lots of discounts available for those 50, 55 and older. Most food establishments do not ask for IDs but some locations may require proof.
