This should work.  And if your file date is still numeric mmddyyyy you can do 
D DOB             S               D   DATFMT(*ISO)  
D SYSDATE         S               D   DATFMT(*ISO)  
C     *usa          test (d e)              filedate
C                   If        not %error            
C     *usa          move      FILEDATE      DOB     
C                   time                    SYSDATE 
C     SYSDATE       SUBDUR    DOB           Age:*Y  
C                   Else                            
C                   move      *zeros        Age     
C                   EndIf                           

Although the TEST (D E) might have to be  TEST (D) with an indicator at your 
release level.

The format mmddyyyy is supported all the way, what have a problem is the
Julian format.
Why don't you change your conversion program to an ILE, and use only the
mmddyyyy format
the operation would be easier


C     SYSDATE      SUBDUR    DOB       AGE:*Y        3 0
