Life Expectancy Quiz to Estimate
Lifetime and Retirement Years

[ Skip to Quiz ] Calcy pointing down

Interactive quiz that gives you a rough estimate of your life expectancy based on your answers to 23 multiple choice questions.

This online life expectancy quiz will calculate a rough estimate of how long you will live based on your age, gender, and your answers to the 23 test questions.

The quiz is based on questions once listed on the Minnesota State Retirement System website, which reported that while there is no way to accurately forecast life expectancy, the "test provides a life insurance company's statistical view of your life expectancy."

The quiz results also include:

  • The number of years remaining in your life expectancy.
  • The estimated number of years you will spend in retirement.
  • The calendar year of the end of your estimated life expectancy.
  • A bullet list of changes you can make to increase your life expectancy.
  • Your Lifetime Usage Meter.

Note that you may want to compare the results on this page with the IRS estimate of your life expectancy.

With that, let's see how long life insurance companies expect you to live until.
