In 2004, the median net worth to be in the top 25% for those familes in the USA were $699 for those with HOH age 60-69, $489 for those with HOH age 70-79, and $536 for those with HOH 80+.

I would suggest that really means it is a non-issue for 75%.



Taxes are the lowest they've been in 50 years. They won't go anywhere but up. Marry that to inflation devaluing the dollar and taxes are going to be a real issue in the future. we can't keep doing the no-tax thing and deficit-spend thing forever.

I'm only 40-something and I'm already above these numbers in my regular IRA. I've been maxing it out for 20 years and making DH do the same. We're savers.
