Then, if you want to get depressed google the "Life of Riley" index, which says if you want a SAFE return (insured) you're only looking at 2% (inflation adjusted T-bills and bonds).

I give up, I save like crazy, max out my 401Ks and just hope for the best. Might buy a rental or two to hedge my bets, and the occasional lottery ticket so I can dream...I know i do more than most, and do all I can, and that's all I can do. Most folks I know don't even fully retire anymore, they go half-time, to keep insurance. That might be the best we can hope for.


just keep in mind that rentals are Work *

... part-time provides insurance?




* and you can get bit --someone bought the house across the street as a rental at the Absolute peak of the RE bubble .. suspect she's not seeing much cash from it
