Well, the thing is, you need what you need. Everyone is different. And, you have to live within your means. I would say to accumulate as much as you can. Lots of people would be thrilled with $100K w/o taxes, others might need more. Depends on your income before retirement doesn't it?I can only say that you need about as much income as you had before you retired. So you don't commute anymore,,,but you might be traveling more. Medical expenses certainly go up. You might eat out more, or you might not.How much you need is a very personal question depending on your lifestyle and how much you want to leave your survivors.I am beginning to hate "spellcheck".Birgit.
