“More Than Half of Americans Want To Live To 100…,” Advisor Magazine
“As more people are living into their 80s and 90s, more than one out of every two Americans has their sights set on even greater longevity. According to a survey[i] released today by AIG Life & Retirement, a surprising 53 percent say their goal is to live to 100 years. Thirty-nine percent identify deeper family relationships as the main benefit of such a long life, 32 percent name seeing the world change and 17 percent want to remain productive.”
LTC Comment (from Stephen A. Moses, President, Center for Long-Term Care Reform):
I wonder how many would drop the live-to-100 goal if they knew the probability of expiring with dementia.
