Maximum password age will be 90 days, minimum is the time before the user can change again, I normally make this 7 days but that is upto you. See link below for help in setting it up

Don't forget a reminder to let the users know their password is going to expire

Group Policy - Default Domain - Policies - Windows Settings - Security Settings - Local Policies - Security Options

Interactive logon: Prompt user to change password before expiration

This is because all password are already older than 90 days or are close to 90 days. You need to get everyone to reset their password before making it live.
