Is age 55 a senior citizen?
The age of a senior citizen varies according to the source. For example, according to Medicare, a senior is 65 years old or older. As such, being a senior citizen may be based on your age, but it is not a specific age. In general, however, once you turn 55 you start to enter the senior age demographic.
