Welcome to My Longevity

Our aim is to help you understand how long you might live and what you can do about it.

"How long will I live"and "what could I do to live longer?" are vital questions for everyone.

Most people want answers to “how long will I live” and “what can I do about it”.

Most people have no idea how long they might live. The starting point is your current age.  You could then use the Australian Life Tables but these are only averages and also fail to factor in ongoing improvements in mortality. They don't explain that the longer you live, the longer you're likely to live. Or that ageing is a personal journey.

Few people understand what influences their ageing and life expectancy. The starting point is your current age. The Australian Life Tables give average life expectancies but are not useful at a personal level - we are all different! Also, they do not show that successive generations are living longer and ageing better.

Many factors influence how long you will live. The Australian Life Tables give averages for each age group. However none of us is "average" and the personal differences can be very important. Each generation is living longer than the last. The "official" tables do not take full account of these changes in life expectancy or the personal nature of ageing.
