(Daily Mail)   Hey dad, there's a letter to you from the government and it says you'll die in 14.9 years. Can I get that car now?   (dailymail.co.uk) divider line 12

It looks like those deep fried mars bars are really paying off in savings on pension spending.

Well that was Scotland, and in a year or two they'll be a separate country so who cares?

So if you live longer than the prediction, they'll just go ahead and declare you dead and stop all pension payments?  The US government may get interested in this.  And with our luck, life expectancy will start dropping very quickly.

My dad turns 66 today and just started collecting social security, so if they decide they only expect him to make to 68, that's only two years of pension.  I need to stop joking like that and giving them ideas.

It says "Daily Mail" but sometimes they have articles about the USA. I wonder if this one is. *CLICK*

Statistics show a clear north-south divide with southerners living longer

Hahahaha. Nope, not the USA.

It's standard to calculate average life expectancy when you're taking IRA distributions. The only difference here is the wording.

People are too stupid to plan for their future, so they depend on the government to provide it.  This is just the government trying to educate people.

Yes, you are going to die.
Yes, we can predict it pretty well.

Here is your expected end-date.  Plan accordingly.

The "naysayers" who claimed that socialized healthcare does not result in the creation of death panels must feel quite foolish at this time.

I don't think the letters are actually ordering people when to die....
