What age should you plan on living to?

While a number of estate planning posts focus what should be done to prepare for retirement, not much is said about life expectancy. After all, most retirement plans are based in part on how long a person is expected to live. With health care advances and more emphasis on healthy living, it is out of the question to think about living to 100?
