The aging process is characterized by the presence of high interindividual variation between individuals of the same chronical age prompting a search for biomarkers that capture this heterogeneity. The present study examines the associations of four epigenetic clocks - Horvath, Hannum, PhenoAge, GrimAge - with a wide range of clinical phenotypes, and with all-cause mortality at up to 10-year follow-up in a sample of 490 participants in the Irish Longitudinal Study on Ageing (TILDA). Results indicate that the GrimAge clock represents a step-improvement in the predictive utility of the epigenetic clocks for identifying age-related decline in an array of clinical phenotypes. ### Competing Interest Statement The authors have declared no competing interest.
