Abstract: Foreign-born Hispanic men can expect to live 3.2 years longer than their U.S.-born counterparts. As successive generations of Hispanic-Americans are born in the U.S., the longevity advantage attributed to the Hispanic-American population will likely disappear and their health outcomes will begin to approach what would be expected given their relatively low socioeconomic status. Proposals to raise the retirement age must anticipate this decrease in Hispanic-Americans longevity or risk disproportionately affecting this community.
