We're all living longer, that fact can't be denied, but how well you are going to live in retirement is open to debate.

Health life expectancy isn't keeping pace with overall life expectancy and men and women who retire at age 65 can expect to live 56% and 57% of their retirements in good health and 58% and 55%, respectively, free form disability, according to the Office of National Statistics.
