Life expectancy calculator

In order for your clients to successfully plan for their future, they should take into account their life expectancy.

With the calculator below – courtesy of the Office for National Statistics – they can see how long they’re likely to live, and the likelihood of them reaching an advanced age.

How to use the calculator

Using the tool is easy – simply input your clients current age, select whether their male or female, and click "Calculate your life expectancy".

The calculator will then show their average life expectancy for people their age and how many years it will take for them to reach this age. It will also display the "one in four" and "one in ten" chances of them reaching certain advanced ages, and the percentage chance of them reaching 100. Below these statistics, the probability (%) of them reaching particular ages is shown on a graph.
