Longevity and Impact on Your Future Retirement

The average live expectancy in the United States has increased, but do you know how that impacts your future retirement?

According to a recent report by the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, Americans are living longer and fewer are dying from major diseases now compared to 40 years ago.

Take this quiz:

1. A male age 55 is expected to live to: A) 73 or B) 83

2. A woman age 55 is expected to live to: A) 79 or B) 86?

3. If a 55-year-old requires long-term care at age 85 just two years of care would cost about: A) $480,000 or B) $245,650?

4. Non-skilled assistance with Activities of Daily Living (ADL), which make up the majority of long-term care services, are paid for only by: A: Health Insurance; B: GI Bill; C: Medicare; D: Long-Term Care Insurance

5. Which one of your adult children would be responsible for being your caregiver?

The answers to the above questions may surprise you. A male age 55 is expected to live to age 83, and a woman age 55 is expected to live to 86. Two years of long term care would cost about $480,00, and non-skilled assistance with ADL is paid for only by Long-Term Care Insurance.

Only you can answer the final question.
