Elder sim won’t die of old age

★★★★ Newbie

Product: The Sims 4
Platform:PC
Which language are you playing the game in? English
How often does the bug occur? Occasionally (10% - 49%)
What is your current game version number? 1.47.51.1020
What expansions, game packs, and stuff packs do you have installed? All of the current expansion packs, Parenthood, Vampires, and Luxury Party Stuff
Steps: How can we find the bug ourselves? Play an Elder until you get the notification that their time is almost up or when their age bar is fully filled.
What happens when the bug occurs? The elder sim lives past the date they are supposed to die. There is also an elder sim in my sim’s family tree who should probably be long dead at this point.
What do you expect to see? When their age bar fills up, they die of old age within the day.
Have you installed any customization with the game, e.g. Custom Content or Mods? Never used.
Did this issue appear after a specific patch or change you made to your system? Neutral/Not Sure 

I recently had an elder sim who didn’t die when his age bar filled up like he was supposed to. I ultimately drowned him because I didn’t want him to live forever. Also, his wife’s mother’s aunt is still alive despite being an elder and his wife’s brother dying normally of old age.

They can live past the bar. I have one live for 1200 SimDays on long.

But are you saying you got a message that they're going to die and they didn't ?
