How old are you now?

Have you planned to have SOME income from a pension or Social Security?
You need to combine ALL sources of expected income and compare that with expected expenses.

A side issue (sorry to those this may anger):

As has recently been observed, it's a shame that Bush and company will probably pour a TRILLION dollars into the Iraq "war", when maybe $650 billion could have probably totally solved the entire SS problem for the next 75 years, this helping many millions of Americans in retirement.

One has to wonder: Which benefits the American people more? Ensuring that Social Security will be there to help everyone? Or wasting precious funds in Iraq, doing little more than upsetting everyone and eventually having to pack up and leave, anyway?

Anyway, good luck with your planning.

Vermonter (happily retired now on far less than that for several years)
