An ‘excellent’ puzzle

Yesterday was my birthday.  For the first time in twenty years, the Roman numeral and the Hindu-Arabic numeral for my age are the same length.  How old am I, and when will this happen again?

Edit: As noted correctly in the comments, I am now 40 (XL) and the next time will be when I am 51 (LI).
