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.

Even though you visit your family their favorite meal is always Filipino dishes made by someone they ordered for one week supply. There are some families who work hard to support their families and no time to cook a healthy meal. Other families find ways to feed their children who come home from school, work and so on they tend to pack meals ahead of time.

I get stuck eating Filipino food because I am living with my family and I have no choice to eat what is served at the table. My sister and her family members love buying food from differe
