Life Expectancy

What Is Your Life Expectancy?

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

Considering that 65-year-old retirees could spend as much as one-third of their lives in retirement, the need for sound lifetime financial management becomes evident. Remember that these figures are based on averages — so you are just as likely to live longer than the average expectancy as you are to die sooner than expected. Are you financially prepared for a long, full life?
