Given our longer lifespans, the eligibility age for SS and Medicare should increase every few years.

How old are you?


65 this year. Life expectancy seems to be increasing about one year every two years, i.e., it's 85 now and 40 years ago it was 65 (more or less). I was thinking moving eligibility up one year every four years. I suppose one could have it 'indexed'.
