Does anybody have a source that separates the two out? For example, to what age can the average X year old today expect to live?

Sure, there is the concept of life expectancy at specific age. For example, there is the "default" life expectancy at birth, there is the life expectancy for a 20 year-old, life expectancy for a 60-year-old, etc. Just google it up.

It's kind of important to the life insurance business ....

1TylerJay6yThanks. Interestingly, My numbers never matched up between any 2 sources. The US SSA's actuarial tables give me a number that's 5 years different from their own "additional life expectancy" calculator.

If it's worth saying, but not worth its own post (even in Discussion), then it goes here.
