Life Expectancy

What Is Your Life Expectancy?

According to the U.S. Census Bureau, the number of Americans aged 90 and over is expected to more than quadruple between 2010 and 2050. During the same period, the population aged 65 to 89 is expected to double.

Are you planning and preparing to enjoy a long, full life? While no one expects to live forever, you may live much longer than you think. According to the National Center for Health Statistics, a male born today can expect to live to age 76 and a female to age 81. 1
