If you are using git with your pass, then you can run something like
this. It determines the age of the first line of the password file.

print_age() {

    cur_time=$(date --date="now" +"%s")
    ch_time=$(git blame -L 1,1 "${filename}" --porcelain --date=relative | sed -n 's/^committer-time //p')
    alt=$(echo "(${cur_time} - ${ch_time})/(60*60*24)" | bc)

    echo "${alt} days - ${filename}"
export -f print_age
parallel print_age ::: $(git ls-tree -r --name-only HEAD)
