A longer average lifespan has many benefits, but it also means that Americans need more financial support as they age. In 1990, a 65-year-old man would live an average of 15 more years. Today, a 65 year-old man will live an average of 21 more years. If not planned for, those additional years of life can cause significant financial strain and threaten our ability to maintain a high quality of life during retirement. In fact, the American Association of Retired Persons published a study revealing that two out of three Americans are more worried about running out of money than dying.1
