Change in Life Expectancy for 65-Year-Olds in the U.S. 2010 Versus 2014

Good news for Americans: You are living longer.

New mortality estimates released Monday by the nonprofit Society of Actuaries show the average 65-year-old U.S. woman is expected to live 88.8 years, up from 86.4 in 2000. Men age 65 are expected to live 86.6 years, up from 84.6 in 2000.

Life expectancy for men and women is on the rise because fewer are smoking and there is better medical treatment, said Dale Hall, managing director of research for Society of Actuaries.
