How Long Will I Live?

Introduction

Background

Life expectancy is the number of years that we expect to live based on population statistics. It depends on your current age and gender.

Actuaries compile mortality statistics and have developed age and gender-related tables that estimate life expectancy.

Estimate Your Life Expectancy

At birth, life expectancy is about 81 years for a male and 84 years for a female. Life expectancy increases as you get older. This is because you survived up to now, while others have not, so there is a good chance that the duration of your life will exceed this average at birth.

Enter your current age and gender to get an estimate of your life expectancy. Select whether you want the life expectancy for yourself only or also inlcude the combined life expectancy for you and your spouse.
