Re: Life Expectancy Calculator
 
according to calculator i could go to 98 and i have lots of close relatives who lived into their 90s. big variable is alzheimer's. my family line with it runs back to mom then her father and his mother, with the siblings of each being spared.

so i've got a two-fold plan. i've got to make sure my money lasts until age 100 while i keep a gun by my side for early check out at 75 or so.

According to that life expectancy calculator,
I will live to be 96.

Fortunately DW will live to 102, so at least I'll have someone I love wiping me bum in my decrepit years :P

Mine said I'll live to 101. I had expected 95, since Mama is 92.

I went back & repeated it, 19# lighter, lower cholesterol, eating low fat, exercising like a crazy woman, & changed a few family histories...... all of which gave me another year... 102.

Think I'll just keep on, keepin' on.

Just to make you all feel like crap -- when I was looking at assisted living facilities for my in-laws I asked what per centage had dementia at their age (85). The answer was 50%. So, living past 85 means 50% of us won't realize where we are or what were doing. Both my in-laws had serious versions of dementia. I am planning to kill myself before then but I'm a total incompetent for most of my assigned tasks.
