In order to get to that number by 60 years old you would need to invest $50,866 per year assuming a 10% rate of return (it goes up to $52,884 if you earn 9%). To retire at 65 you would need to invest $37,349 per year assuming 10%.Note that the above calculations do account for your current balances, but ignore the 62,000 in savings. Really- where did you account for the 185K sitting in his existing retirement account?Quick calculation I do at 10% return till age 65 shows that 185K becomes a nest-egg of $2+ Million.To the OP: I think you are doing very well, but I think you continue to contribute to your retirement vehicles. Why? For a number of reasons, but mostly because I wouldn't count on staying 100% in equity investments through age 65, which thus reduces the possibility of the above $2M based on existing balance.Other factors to think about-- Number of years in retirement- Your health and health care costs- Inflation- Tax rate (when you retire)Hohum
