"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?"

heh heh...

without the rest of the details.....

I assume a a lot of 25 year olds don't have 100K in savings. Are you counting them?

Or 30 or 40 year olds?

You only approach those kinds of figures after 30-40 years of savings for many folks......or those with high income who can stash the cash year after year.

Only 2 or 3 wake up one morning, and decide that is the day they will win the lottery (and do) to have that big a nest egg..
