How long will I live – do I want to know?



“Steve Webb, the pensions minister, says Government wants to provide pensioners with rough life expectancy guide to allow them to make better financial decisions.”

Won’t the Government be concerned that they run the risk of being sued if people die before the forecast time?  Not by the person who has had their life cut short, obviously, but by the family members who had certain expectations for their relations.

I was a bit bored today so decided to take a test on how long I was expected to live and it came out at 94 years, possibly 99 years!

A bit scary actually, but I’ll try and achieve it!
