More American Senior Citizens Struggle with Mounting Debts

Ideally, when you reach the twilight of your life or the so called senior citizen years, the normal routine is rest and recreation for your weary body. But sadly, such an ideal scenario among senior citizens is hardly felt in the United States. According to reports, many senior citizens in America have mounting debts and most of them have a hard time paying it.
The mounting debts of people in the age of 65 and above are primarily due to  mortgages and credit cards.
