Have you tried putting in all your current stats, but four years older, and seen how that compared? The slight chance of dying at a young age can have a non-trivial impact in overall life expectancy (i.e. if you have lived to reach 50, your expected lifespan is longer (total, not remaining) than when you were 20).
