Time to redefine what exactly elderly means. Some government entity in the past defined it as 65 or 62. Not true anymore. As life quality and expectancy increase the age at which one can no longer be productively employed has also increased. There is no reason to quit working at 62 and no reason for the government to pick up health care at 65. I am almost 72 and I am irked when I see journalists refer to 60+ year olds as "elderly."
