Life Expectancy Calculators

Calculators can give you an idea of your life expectancy (the time remaining from your current age) based on your current age, gender, and several other important lifestyle choices. Calculators are used widely by financial and insurance companies for planning purposes as well as by non-professionals, like you, for general well-being strategy and planning.

With few exceptions most calculators are based on data collected in US or Canada over a period of a couple of decades.  Life expectancy results reveal very little about normal process of aging, and associated quality of life.

Here are links to a few of the many public domain online calculators:

US Social Security Administration is a barebones lifeexpectancy calculator; Living to 100, Blueprint Income, and Project Big Life offer suggestions and strategies to up your longevity game.

The results are averages and should not be accepted as fact or fate. It is very unlikely that anyone will live exactly as long as any calculator predicts.

The best way is to use the results only as an inspiration to value your remaining time, not to convey certainty.

The Actuary Longevity Illustrator calculates an approximation of your longevity – how long you might actually live. This is different from your life expectancy, which is how long an individual of your age, gender, and health would be anticipated to live on average.

And Your-Life-In-Weeks wants to remind you to stop wasting your remaining time.
