AI = annual income to me.

Are you using expected annual expenses with an inflation factor as AI? In retirement there's no more saving for retirement (that 20% is a big hunk of your high incomes), no SS or Medicare contributions, most likely lower income taxes, even if your health care costs = your mortgage payments.

There's also the possibility of downsizing, moving to a lower COL area, buying a more energy-efficient home, sharing a single car, buying a more energy-efficient car.
