If your pension and SSA come to $50,000 a year and your expenses are $60,000, you need to cover $10,000 per year from savings.

Or, if you're retired, maybe you can try to limit your retirement expenses to the $50,000 you're getting!?

I know... no one should judge how others live, but $50,000/yr sounds pretty darned good to us for retirees!

Just another man's opinion.
