Life Expectancy Quiz to Estimate Lifetime and Retirement Years
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 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 the quiz is based on questions once listed on the Minnesota State Retirement System website, which at the time reported that while there is no way to forecast life expectancy accurately, the "test provides a life insurance company's statistical view of your life expectancy."
A Data Record is a set of calculator entries that are stored in your web browser's Local Storage. If a Data Record is currently selected in the "Data" tab, this line will list the name you gave to that data record. If no data record is selected, or you have no entries stored for this calculator, the line will display "None".

Help and Tools
Adjust Calculator Width:
Move the slider to left and right to adjust the calculator width. Note that the Help and Tools panel will be hidden when the calculator is too wide to fit both on the screen. Moving the slider to the left will bring the instructions and tools panel back into view.
Also note that some calculators will reformat to accommodate the screen size as you make the calculator wider or narrower. If the calculator is narrow, columns of entry rows will be converted to a vertical entry form, whereas a wider calculator will display columns of entry rows, and the entry fields will be smaller in size ... since they will not need to be "thumb friendly".
Show/Hide Popup Keypads:
Select Show or Hide to show or hide the popup keypad icons located next to numeric entry fields. These are generally only needed for mobile devices that don't have decimal points in their numeric keypads. So if you are on a desktop, you may find the calculator to be more user-friendly and less cluttered without them.
Select Stick or Unstick to stick or unstick the help and tools panel. Selecting "Stick" will keep the panel in view while scrolling the calculator vertically. If you find that annoying, select "Unstick" to keep the panel in a stationary position.
If the tools panel becomes "Unstuck" on its own, try clicking "Unstick" and then "Stick" to re-stick the panel.
