# Future Age Calculator

Calculate your future age and see the date on which you will be that age. Simply enter your date of birth, the future age you want to calculate, including the age in years, and, optionally, in months, and the calculator will show the approximate date you will reach that age, as well as how long that date is from today. Future age calculating is helpful for retirement planning: see when you will be your full retirement age.

Past Age Calcuator too! Easily check the date you were a past age by entering age (in years and months) less than present age.

## Criteria Fields

*Calculate Years Old* - Use this field to specify the future age, in years. Example2: 59, 62, 70
for 59 years old, 62 years old, and 70 years old, respectively.

*Plus Months* - This is an optional field which you can use to also calculate the number of additional
months when aging. For example, to calculate 66 years plus 4 months, enter 4 into this field (and 66 into the
Years Old field).

*Note: * A *half year* is 6 months. So, for 59.5, you would enter 6 Months (and 59 for year).
A quarter year is 3 months.

## About Calculator

Depending on the criteria you enter (ie. birth date and target age), the calculator may generate
a date which varies by a day or more *after* the date you might expect. The following
examples help explain results you might see, as well as how the date math arrived at these
results. Typically when calculating on years only (by leaving the months field
empty) you will get the date you expect, except in the case of leap years as outlined in
example 2 below.

*Example 1: *Person born March 31, 1998. Calculate when this person will be 30 years old.
Result is March 31, 2028, as expected. However, if checking when the person will
be 30 years and 6 months, Sunday October 1, 2028 is calculated. That's because 6 months ahead
would be September 31, but since September only has 30 days, the date rolls forward by a day.

*Example 2: *Leap years have an extra day (366 days), namely February 29th, whereas non-leap
years are only 365 days. If a person is born in a leap year and on February 29th, birth dates
are an issue in non-leap years. Some celebrate on February 28th, others on March 1st. This
calculator uses March 1 to mark a year boundary for non-leap years. So, for example, if a person
is born February 29, 1980, this
calculator would indicate the person is 62 on March 1, 2042, since 2042 is not a leap year. However,
it would indicate the person is 60 on February 29 2040, since 2040 is a leap year.

*Example 3:* Person born August 31, 2001. When is this person 66? On August 31, 2067. But if
checking when this person is 66 years old and 6 months (ie. 66.5), Friday March 2, 2068 is generated
because it's a leap year (February has 29 days) plus 2 more days since August has 31 days. If checking
when this person is 67.5, we get March 3, 2069 because it's not a leap year (February has 28 days)
plus 3 more days since August has 31 days.
