Pretty much now. You're up to seven years. That's the limit.

The service manager at the local honda dealership told me that the timing
belt should be replaced after 7 years or at 75,000 miles--whichever comes
first.
In other words, you should have your timing belt replaced during your next
scheduled service. It's a good idea to have your water pump changed at the
same time--according to the service manager. Of course, if you have ever
replaced the water pump--don't replace the water pump when you have the
timing belt changed.

The timing belt would almost certainly have been replaced if the water pump
was done, since the belt has to be removed to replace the pump. Absolutely
replace the pump when replacing the belt - my soul can't take many more
tales of woe from those who didn't. IMHO, replacing the belt without
replacing the pump is pointless; your engine is still at risk.
