Longevity Trends and Life Expectancy Calculators

You have probably heard it before, Americans are living longer than any previous generation — a lot longer.

Longevity Trends

The average life expectancy for a 65-year-old American is 17.7 years for a male and 20.3 years for a female. That means that — according to the Social Security Administration — the average 65 year old man will live until almost 83 and the average woman will live until over 85. But at least half of us will live even longer — a lot longer.

And there is a twist,  the longer we live, the longer we will live.  A longer life begets an even longer life.  While, a 65-year-old American man can expect to live to almost 83, an  85 year old man can expect to live past 90 — on average.
