It concerns me that 47% of the baby-boomers think they can retire prior to age 65 when only 18% of them have over $250K in savings, and they expect they'll need $832K?

IIRC about half of baby boomers will receive pensions (with luck-) and about a quarter expect to receive a sizable inheritance (likewise).

By Generation: Echo Boomers Gen X Baby Boomers Mature
Money Needed for Retirement: $536,000 $938,000 $832,000 567,000

Is this per person or per couple?
