If I understand your intent, it has nothing to do with simple_form.
Either a migration-based default value for the database field or a
model-based, after_create filter could be used to set the initial
value of the age field in a newly-created instance of the object.
That, in turn, will have the result that it appears to me you're
trying to achieve.

HTH,
Bill

<%= f.input :name, :input_html => { :value => ‘test’} %>
