With increased life expectancy and rising healthcare costs, employers and governments are faced with new opportunities and challenges, according to discussions at the 2008 Living to 100 Symposium in Orlando, Fla., sponsored by the Society of Actuaries of Schaumburg, Ill.

“The implication of longevity is a huge blind spot for employers, especially since many individuals are looking to retire at age 65 like their parents did before them,” said Valerie Paganelli, senior consulting actuary with Paganelli Consulting.
