How long have you got left to live? Latest estimations for the UK from the Office for National Statistics (ONS) show that men aged 65 between 2012 and 2014 can expect to live to about 83 and about 86 for women.[1]

On an individual basis though, did you know that your life expectancy could be determined as much by your education, social life and postcode, as by diet and whether you smoke? For example, being clinically [2]obese could shorten your life by up to 10 years.

 

 

Results from this life expectancy calculator provided by Legal & General Group are based on several studies and individual factors provided by the user. This calculator assumes you do not have a terminal illness and does not ask about most serious diseases. The results are a guide only and should not be interpreted as definitive. Actual longevity is based on many factors, not all of which are captured here. Legal & General cannot be held responsible for any actions or purchases of retirement or life cover products made on the basis of these results.[3]
