Finding AIX user accounts expired or locked

// AIX 6.1

In need of finding which AIX user accounts will be expired and are
locked.

I have placed the following parameters under /etc/security/user

PHP Code:
        maxage 12                                                     
        maxexpired 
2                                                  
        pwdwarntime 
14                                                
        loginretries 
10                                               
        histsize 

Is there a way to check them out so that I can take proactive actions?

Please advise.
