Life at Age 55 in the United States

Did you know in the United States when you reach 55 years old, you're consider a senior citizen? Carmina realized being one year to become fifty-five years old she can take advantage of the benefits when you're visiting the United States. Certain stores provide a discount when you shop at their store example in Seafood City Supermarket it is 12% from your purchases on every Tuesday. Ross Dress for Less Store every Tuesday is 10% off your purchase. Basically, you can gain a pension from support from the government to apply for low income when you want to start a life living back in the United States if you wanted too without having an income.

Medical Check Up In the Philippines

Feeling over whelmed from medical expenses and planning to visit the Philippines because your Medicare doesn’t cover some general check up from your new employer. No matter what the reason there are a lot of people having their general check up from different hospital and it is great when you have family or relatives who have connections inside and they know which doctor they can recommend to treat you in what you need to be check up on. I live with people who are doctors of some sort and I also have relatives who are also having access because they work in different hospitals. We need something and we feel there is something wrong with us they can refer us to someone to see in what type of illness we have. Everyone goes to the basic with the general check up and having their labortory work done to see what kind of health they are in. Some people just want to make sure before they travel away from home that their illness is alright because to prevent something happen

Eye Examination in the Philippines

Getting your eye examinations in different country are expensive and most people doesn’t have it covered where they live. Most people who come to visit the Philippines they make sure they stop by the stores that sells eye glasses that are free of charge as long you will purchase the products from them. There is always a doctor on duty who can do eye examination on your eyes. It is best to bring your reading glasses to check the lens to know what your grade on your lens. The stores always have promotional in purchasing their product. The best part there are places you can get your new pair of reading glasses on the same day you have made a visit. I have family members who purchase eye glasses frame from where they live and just buy the lens for their eye glasses this way they spend less. They also buy sunglasses and put grade on them this way they save more money. Just like any where when you reach a certain age you need lasik surgery most people are not covered w

Dental Care in the Philippines

Dental Care in the States or European countries is expensive and when you reach the retirement age your coverage doesn’t provide what you need. I have relatives who come to the Philippines to have their dental care. They say it is inexpensive compare to the prices they are being charge for their service. When you decided to have your dental checkup it is best to stay in the Philippines at least between one to two months all procedure takes time to process especially if you are planning to get new dentures or implants on your teeth. Always ask your closest family and relatives to schedule you an appointment this way when you have arrived you can be already been seen by the dentist. It is best to bring along your x-ray from where you live this way the dentist can over look and see what needs to be done during your visit. It also saves time and money. On based on my experience I had a relative who was just visiting for two weeks and she needed her dentures repaired.


Time to think of retirement that will come in handy as we aged and we have a family of our own we want to think ahead how well we can support ourselves when the time comes. When you have reached 65 years old when your work has replace you with someone much younger than you. How will you cope paying off your debts that has over piled as you keep paying your expenses? You still have children in school and you need to save up for the future, but the life in America is not easy as we have a difficult surviving pay our daily expenses. There are people who move further away from the city where they say, the living expenses are more inexpensive and be able to save up for the future of their children and their retirement. There are some people who are not willing to move themselves they feel comfortable in what they have already adapted themselves. All I can say it is up to you what you want to change your life. People say I am lucky because I have already thought too
