Not a discount, but you can withdraw penalty free from your 401K after you leave your job.

Walgreens(/Duane Reed?) start honoring a lot of their senior discounts at 55. This includes a 1st Tuesday of the month Senior’s Day; 20% off all non-sale items, excluding liquor, tobacco and dairy items.

Policies like this can vary by region, so I’d confirm locally.

Pain free days discounted 20%
Short term memory discounted 10%
Hair - less 20%
Odds of a 25 year old being interested in you - discounted 90%

But the good news is you qualify for T-mobile senior unlimited plan (2 phones for $70)

.....another 'bonus' is that men at your age will be dating younger men/woman.....so the pool of potential mates at your same age has just decreased.......the good news is that you can date younger.......

Bernie, you are incorrect.

According to IRS Topic 558:
The following additional exceptions apply only to distributions from a qualified retirement plan other than an IRA:

Distributions made to you after you separated from service with your employer if the separation occurred in or after the year you reached age 55, or distributions made from a qualified governmental benefit plan, as defined in section 414(d)

..
Each percentage point can be offset by net worth... about $2M per percent. For certain 25 year olds only. This does come with a 75% probability of divorce in less than 5 years.

Too bad modern child, 55 is now the bloom of youth. Now you have to be much older to be 'old'.

65 is when local discounts seem to get better.

10% discount at El Pollo Loco.

Woo hoo!

You can start asking for Senior Discounts. MANY places don't have a specific age, but if you ask, you get it. One clerk said "You should ask me about a discount. I have to give it to you, and store policy also says I can't ask your age."

My life changed when I took a van full of kids to Summerfest (Mke music fest) with an older friend. He got in for FIVE BUCKS! The next day, he would've gotten in for free! As soon as I heard that huge discounts happened at 60...

... I couldn't WAIT to get old!

Indeed.

The three-piece breast and wing, with two loco salads, or one with mash potatoes, is my staple. I get that almost once a week. It's worth a trip. The senior discount is 86¢ or so. I can swing by Wendy's and get a large fry for $1.

Very tasty.

I'm over 55 - haven't noticed any senior discounts yet. I think most start at age 60 or older.

I'm looking forward to purchasing a Lifetime Senior Pass from the National Park Service - available at age 62 for $80 National Park Service
