I have the "live a long time" gene. Both my parent's parents and their siblings live into the 90's. My parents are doing just fine at 87 and 85. sort of.

They do have some financial things that are slipping through the cracks.

What I don't have a feel for, is can you continue to actively work your portfolio when your mind starts slowing down "just a little"?

I don't think you can assume that you can manage your port till you die.

At some point, you need things either on auto-pilot or with a financial advisor who is following your direction.

If you start making financial mistakes in your 80's then your 90's might not be any fun.
