Given that it’s Life Insurance Awareness Month, we thought we might offer a few tools for you to assess your risk of imminent mortality. We’ve mixed the serious with the silly to lighten things up a bit.
Heart Disease Risk Calculator – estimate your chance of a cardiac event, dying from heart disease, and your overall chance of dying in the next 10 years.
Are you likely to die of a shark attack? Compare the relative risk of shark attacks to humans to various other risks.
Life Expectancy Table – find your age and your sex to learn the additional number of years you may expect to live. A footnote says that one-half of individuals can expect to live beyond their life expectancy and one-half will not live to that age.
The Death Clock bills itself as “the Internet’s friendly reminder that life is slipping away… second by second.” Enter your date of birth, sex, bmi and smoking status. You can choose to your results on a scale ranging from “sadistic” to “optimistic” – or just plain “normal.”
