Pulling numbers from the air:
$1800 from Social Security (a person with a large retirement account probably had a high income and therefore will be getting a higher than average SS benefit.
$2500 from a pension.
That's $4300 or $51,600 right there.


Well, you were grabbing air this time. What little I do know about intercst is that he retired at age 39 and I think still less than age 60. That means he probably worked in his profession about 17-18 years. At his age, he isn't collecting SS yet, probably didn't have a pension or received a lump sum and was never married so no spousal SS benefit.
