I voted for a million plus, but that doesn't indicate how much over a million we are talking about. I am hoping to check out in my mid-40s, so we are talking about having to plan for a 50 year withdrawal period. My wife is from a traditionally very long-lived family, so there is a high likelihood that one of us will approach age 100. I also have an 8 month old daughter, and expect to have 1 or 2 additional kids. IOW, living expenses will be higher in the near term, and then I will be on the hook for college costs. So it is very hard to tell what my actual needs will be, but they will be quite large.
