Subtraction of a number of years from a standard table of life insurance rates under the assumption that a particular group-women-outlive men and presumably will be paying premiums for a longer time. For example, a 38-year-old woman may pay the same premiums as a 35-year-old man. Age setback is a women's rights issue, with at least one state having legislated that men and women the same age must be charged the same rates for the life insurance they buy.
