Our senior years may bring on the aches and pains but they also offer us some great money saving opportunites as well. A few benefits you may not know about:
Check with your state’s department of aging for a list of universities that have “lifelong learning programs” – these are programs that offer seniors tution-free courses when space is available. In Ohio, for example, 36 institutions offer no-fee courses to people over 60.
Many banks offer no-fee accounts for seniors. Search for one at NerdWallet.com.
Rides Around Town
Many cities and states give seniors a free pass for public transportation. In Pennsylvania, for example, all local bus and rail services are free for those 65 and over. Ceheck with your local transit authority to see if they offer something similar.
Contact your local library to see if they offer computer courses for seniors. Many of them do and they are often free.
