I agree that they may think it.

... But I don't know. You would have to ask someone who makes more than 105k a year and does not accept the fact that they are rich.


Where does this idea that one is rich because they have a household income over $105K? In some states, you would definitely be considered rich if you had an annual income of $105K. In others, you would still be in the middle class until your income exceeded $150K.

It does seem a little strange now that I'm retired and required to make RMD withdrawals, I'm no longer in the middle class but am now considered rich by others.
