telegraph asks,

"A million dollar retirement account puts you in the Top 5% of savers. If you can't retire with more money than 95% of the population, then when can you retire?"


heh heh...

without the rest of the details.....

I assume a a lot of 25 year olds don't have 100K in savings. Are you counting them?

Of course not. I'm counting the percentage of the population with $1 million or more in "investable assets". The vast majority of whom are 55 and older.
