The senior cards were originally, though not very publicly, marketed to those of us over a certain age (60, I think was the original plan). I've read anecdotally of folks well under that age getting a senior card, so there likely is no longer an age requirement, but one would need to check with AMEX on that to make sure.
I think of it as a debit card that doesn't look tacky and has good insurance.
