I'd say your way ahead of the average folks, but I'd look into increasing your savings each year. Assuming $9k in savings and 8% growth rate you are looking at around $1,000,000 in 23 years, in todays dollars. Will be less with inflation.

Without a home paid off, $1,000,000 will be tough to retire on at age 55, but possible. Depends where you want to retire, and what standard of living you are looking for.
