Fifty years from now, will we be paying flying car insurance? Mass transit teleportation tickets? Service fees for neural implant logon to the noumenal cyberunification mentality? Vacations to Disneyworld Luna or Mars? Maintenance costs for bloodstream nanorobotics? Who knows, but you can't go wrong by saving now... :)

Or, in the less sci-fi vein:

* Carbon taxes
* Routine medical care and other assorted expenses in the very expensive but easily achievable decades of life past seventy
* Power and cooling bills reflective of the fact that your house is as wired as some late twentieth century data centers.  (And I don't even believe in Peak Oil.)
* Higher income taxes to pay for all the seniors who weren't as prescient as you were
