12 Free Things for Seniors

Check out these free things WealthUp has found for senior citizens! Why pay if you don't have to?

WealthUp ~ "Always Free Stuff for Senior Citizens

I’m going to start with things that are always free. You don’t need a membership, a buy-one-get-one-free coupon, nothing. As long as you meet the age of eligibility, you can literally get these things for a smile—or a frown, if you’re not the smiling type.


1. Tax Help

Taxes can be time-consuming and confusing no matter your age. So thank your lucky stars if you’ve reached age 60, because at that point, you can begin to receive free tax help from the Tax Counseling for the Elderly (TCE) grant program.


Through this program, volunteers at eligible organizations provide tax assistance to the elderly, typically in locations that are convenient for senior citizens to get to. The IRS in turn reimburses the volunteers for transportation, meals, and other expenses.


To be clear: These volunteers are qualified to provide tax assistance. Before they can help prepare tax returns, they must take and pass tax law training that meets or exceeds IRS standards. And the IRS requires every return prepared by TCE volunteers to undergo a quality review before they’re filed.


This free tax preparation help is available from Jan. 1 to April 15 every year. And the program must offer tax assistance to older adults year-round.


2. Free Courses

While you can’t get free education at every single university, many colleges do offer tuition-free courses to senior citizens. They might be online courses, in-person courses, or a mix of both." ~ WealthUp
