How long might I live in retirement?

How long might I live in retirement?

This calculator helps give an indication of the chances of living to certain ages.  It is based on UK Pensions Industry Data* and your own assessment of your general health.

*The Continuous Mortality Investigation (2017).*

These definitions and examples will help you:

Excellent health - assumes that you are feeling pretty good, haven’t been to the doctors for as long as you can remember. Your height and weight are fine, and you don’t take any tablets for any health conditions.

Reasonable Health – assumes that you are feeling okay health wise, but not brilliant. You have managed to give up smoking, but you take tablets for high cholesterol and blood pressure.

Challenging – assumes that your health is struggling. You are a smoker, and although you take tablets for high blood pressure and cholesterol, it is the more serious condition such as Parkinsons that is impacting on your activities of daily living

Critical Health – assumes that you are suffering from a serious medical condition such as cancer, and undergoing treatment for it. You find it difficult to get about, and possibly need assistance with day to day activities.
