I am 36 years old.
My sister is 38 years old.
If everyone over 65 is dead then my parents would die.
If I am going to die at the age of 65 there is no need for me to save for superannuation as I am only allowed by government to collect that from them

The finances of the old would possibly filter down to the younger with Wills.
There would be a lot more younger people with money.
Retirement homes / villages would be empty or have to find a new niche
Property prices would probably plummet too.
Health care systems would get a bit of a load off.
I dont know what else at the moment
