Although some seniors have fair amount of disposable income, most don't. Many live SS check to SS check, barely making ends meet.

There are many non-retired who have a large disposable income, also. Yet Bill Gates pays the same fee as Joe Paycheck. There is no practical way to means test an entrance fee.
