This is taking the following into consideration:

No debt: Being and staying debt-free is the key to building wealth, and it will stretch your retirement dollars.

Medical costs: The average couple retiring at age 65 will spend $285,000 in health care costs in retirement. You could end up spending significantly more or less.

Long-term care needs: Folks who reach age 65 have a 60% chance of needing long-term care either in a nursing home or assisted-living facility. Long-term care insurance will protect your retirement savings, so factor those costs into your planning.

Annual income you wish to retire on: $55,000
Divide by: .08
Retirement goal: $687,500
That is what you would need put away to retire on what you are currently making... now depending on your age: you would do the following

687,500 x .001698 ( my age is 45) = I would need to put away $1,167.38 a MONTH! Ekkkkkkkk I better start socking it away!

Want to try yours?

25 = .000286
30 = .000436
35 = .000671
40 = .001051
45 = .001698
50 = .002890
55 = .005466
60 = .013610
