Hello and thank you for your question.

Not all sources agree, but here are several.

HCFA Medicaid Life Expectancy Tables (Female)
Age 95 3.36 years

Life Expectancy Tables provided by the IRS (Unisex)
Age 95  4.1 years

Washington OSA (female)
Age 95  3 years

State of Oregon (female)
Age 95  3.36 years

Social Security (female)
Age 95  3.09 years
[Updated November 19, 2004]

So it looks like the consensus is 3 to 4 years.

That is the wonderful thing about actuarial tables, they always
suggest a nice future, even though, when looking back, they predict
that that you really should be there any more   - on odds.

You can get a lot more accurate if you give the person's years of schooling and
Racial background....Hispanic...Black or White.
