How Much Money Will You Need for Retirement?
When it comes to saving for retirement, it helps to have a target. Many advisors say that you’ll need 70% of your pre-retirement yearly salary to live comfortably. The experts at CNN Money, however, aren’t so sure. “That might be enough if you’ve paid off your mortgage and are in excellent health when you kiss the office good-bye. But if you plan to build your dream house, trot around the globe, or get that Ph.D. in philosophy you’ve always wanted, you may need 100% of your annual income – or more,” they say.
Here’s more good advice from CNN Money: “It’s important to make realistic estimates about what kind of expenses you will have in retirement. Be honest about how you want to live in retirement and how much it will cost. These estimates are important when it comes time to figure out how much you need to save in order to comfortably afford your retirement.”
