Getting older doesn't mean getting less awesome. In fact, if you live in Singapore, becoming a senior citizen means you suddenly gain access to a whole bunch of discounts that make it easier to enjoy life while stretching your retirement savings and CPF payouts.
Some of these discounts are available for seniors who have turned 55, but the most of them set the minimum age at 60 years old.
