I mean for protein. No meat because she has no teeth. I'm sure she eats other stuff.

My thoughts exactly. Come on back when you're 73, and tell us you're ready to go in 2 years.

One of the most difficult things for a person to truly apprehend is the idea of their own death (although all, of course, know they will one day physically die).

“It is quite impossible for a thinking being to imagine non-being, a cessation of thought and life. In this, everyone carries the proof of his own immortality within himself.” Johann Wolfgang von Goethe 1749-1832

Originally set 95yo for our personal investment part of formula (SS and pension comprise the other parts). My father is 97. Mom passed at 95. Both with health aids.

However, we retired with small pension income and thus bought pensions in form of GLWB deferred annuities to supplement that leg of stool. (Other annuities may work for you). The now Discretionary was at one time the Personal Retirement Investments leg, comprised in Indexes and Managed Accts (W funds) and this was geared for 95yo. See signature line below.

Recent health issues, I am mentally moving life expectancy to 75 for me and 95yo for wife (95 and 90 yo for her parents without health aids).

It is for you, now. Wait till you reach 70. You'll be bargaining for 80.

I honestly do not think I will. I'm not going to off myself, but I won't feel like I didn't live a full life if I only made it to 75. Lots of people in my family lasted that long and they led interesting lives. I am not afraid.

Depends on who's in your love life at that point.
