"Senior Checked" checks out businesses catering to seniors
Local television stations such as NBC-Washington have been carrying spots for “Senior Checked” which is a private agency that certifies businesses as safe for seniors to do business with.
“Senior Checked” costs a business $175 as of this writing and requires providers to meet certain standards in business practices, including insurance, information privacy protection and performing certain background checks of employees.
The website domain name and company name (which is USPTO-trademarked) has the past participle in it. There is another website “seniorcheck.com” that has nothing to do with this business.
Furthermore, the colloquial term “senior check” often refers to making sure that one is in the last year of high school or college.
