Life Expectancy Calculator

The following table lists the average number of additional years a male born on July 14, 1937, can expect to live when he reaches a specific age.

(in years) Estimated Total Years
82a 7.5 89.6
a Your current age.


Note: The estimates of additional life expectancy:

do not take into account a wide number of factors such as current health, lifestyle, and family history that could increase or decrease life expectancy.

are based on
the gender and date of birth you entered (your cohort) and
information from our cohort life expectancy tables.
(Some of the information can be found in the 2019 Trustees Report.)

What’s the Chinese proverb?

A lucky man lives to 80, an unlucky man lives to 100.

But how about you? How long do you expect to be alive in retirement? Do you plan to be healthy for most of your retirement years? Will you live longer than the typical life expectancy? (The Mid 80s for people who lived to age 62)

If you expect to live a long time in retirement and will be full of health and vigor how does this impact your bucket list? Will you postpone some of your bucket list because you expect to be able to do many of these things in 20-30 years?
I’m pretty healthy. My parents are 88 and 93. Still going. Grandfather lived to 96.

That said, who knows??? I am planning for a 30 year retirement, financially.

None of this impacts any “ bucket list” I might have.

I too am one that cares more about quality than quantity. At nearly 70, I am in pretty good health overall, but do suffer with various aches and pains due to injuries and back issues. The women on my father's side mostly lived until their 90s, grandmother until 103. But quality of life wasn't there at the end. My mother passed from lung cancer at age 58, my dad at 79 from aneurysm. I really don't think we can predict and frankly, I don't want to know.

Just want to enjoy whatever I have left and when the quality is not there anymore, I want to leave.

I don't know anyone that wants to know how long they will live.

Most focus on how they will expire rather than when.

Ageing is a process of giving up of things that were routine in earlier years.

I tell folks that I will be 100 in 15 years, which is a positive outlook.

I can plan all I want. Life can decide to intervene at any moment.

I’m planning financially for 30 years which will be 90 yo. But let’s face it after 80 you’re traveling active lifestyle really drops off.

Hoping for a solid 15 years in retirement before I can’t go any longer.
