Help! I need to work out when I'm going to croak.

I've finally started looking at my finances, a subject I that put off at every opportunity. It seems I've got to get some kind of idea about when I'm going to die in order to cheat the likes of @srw and the annuity club out of their fat fees.

Are there any online tools for this?

Thank you.

I'm no expert Slomo, but I have met you, and I'd suggest a soft rather than hard-boiled egg for breakfast...

Pretend you smoke 40 a day and don't exercise and get the best rates you can.
I'm not going to lie to them but it's a really odd situation. When buying travel insurance, the premium gets hiked up if you reveal any pre-existing medical conditions. With an annuity, every ailment sticks more money in your pocket. I'm not sure if I should be laughing or weeping.

The three sites gave my croak dates as 2029, 2040, and 1987 respectively. Sometimes I think that the last one could be the most accurate. Anyway, I must hasten away to my coffin before a chink in the curtain allows in a sliver of sunlight.

Unless you have a life shortening medical condition, why not just plan for your finances to run out when you reach your early to mid nineties? Then if you do live that long, your needs will be fewer and the state pension should suffice. I personally wouldn’t use an internet “death clock” for financial planning.
