    Not enough. With interest rates at historic lows (who could have predicted that), hard to supplement government pension with interest income that is even less than inflation. Drawing down savings faster than anticipated. Hope I die before I go broke.

    More than a million. I just turned 36, Have plenty of time to sock a way some more. I plan on retiring by the time I turn 54. At this rate I should have 7 Million. I feel my wife and I can live comfortably at our current life style for 25 years on 7 million. Im sure I will die first, and that point my life insurance will take her the rest of the way into the good night.

    Those "low interest rates" the Fed champions as our salvation have robbed trillions from retirees and other savers.

    i don't plan on retiring. i hear there is mandatory 401k disbursements when i am 70 or so so I don't ever expect to run thru the 401k - i really just haven't thought about it too much because i don't expect to last long enough for it to matter: there is no way i am making it to 80, and i have serious doubts about 73.

    If I make it to 67, I should be comfy in my retirement.

    With life insurance, I'm worth more dead than alive to my wife so, I need to sleep with one eye open.

    I'm sure you did, but a mil by the age of 40? Even people who make 100k a year by the early age of 30 would have a hard time making that goal.

    I get it. I'm not knocking people who don't. All I know is that I was told that I would be paid 150 a week for 24 months. After that, I was on my own and that ended. I'm in sales.

    Anyone who brags about how much money they have in the bank is a douche bag.

    That being said, I'm starting a crowd-funding campaign for my retirement. Details to follow.
