1) Various ages are used as the attained age, as in the age of majority or retirement.

2) Attained age pricing adjusts pricing according to age. The older the policy holder, the more that policy holder pays to remain covered. This type of policy may have lower initial expenses, but may become more expensive than issue-age pricing or community-rated pricing as the policy holder ages.
