I'm not a fan of rules of thumb. My plans for retirement depended on what age I thought I would want to be able retire and what I wanted to do in retirement.

One rule I did have for myself was to never pass up a matching penny.

If married, it's a good idea to model retiring married as well as modeling what happens if only one of you makes it to retirement.
