"A million dollar retirement account puts you in the Top 5% of savers. If you can't retire with more money than 95% of the population, then when can you retire?" intercst


I can't remember who posted it but I seem to recall a post that said something to the effect that a large number of retirees living in Florida were living pretty much on social security? Maybe they meant like married couples with two social security checks?

I saw a fairly nice modest mobile home in Florida in a retirement village for like $20,000 plus a $450/month lot fee. If you got a swimming pool, game room, other old folks to talk to, it might not be so bad.
