Live Long and Master Aging podcast

Exploring the science and stories behind human longevity

with Peter Bowes

Latest episode



What if we run out of money, as we get older? If we live a very long, healthy and active life, will we be able to afford the kind of lifestyle that we aspire to, as a nonagenarian or centenarian? The so-called longevity risk poses a dilemma for many people. The goal is to enjoy a vibrant healthspan but it could prove to be expensive.  In this episode of the Live Long and Master Aging podcast we discuss the financial side of living a very long life. We also meet LLAMA’s new sponsor, AgeUp, a novel financial product that provides guaranteed supplemental income for people who worry about the financial impact of longevity. We explore the idea of longevity annuities – sometimes called deferred income annuities – as a way to set up a stream of income for life beyond 90. Blair Baldwin, founder and general manager of AgeUp, explains how the product came about, he shares the research behind the concept, and breaks down how it works.
