Senior citizen is a general designation for personas who have reached a certain age, which may vary by different standards. It is also used in place of traditional terms such as “old person” or elderly as a courtesy, intended to signify continuing relevance of, and respect for, this population group as “citizens” of society, of “senior” rank. The term was apparently coined in 1938 during a political campaign. In commerce, business offer “senior discounts”, sometimes with a special “senior discount card”. The age which qualifies for senior citizen status varies widely. In governmental contexts it is usually associated with an age at which pensions or medical benefits for the elderly become available. In commercial contexts, where it may serve as a marketing device to attract customers, the age is often significantly lower.
