Comment: I did the math a little different...

(See in situ)


I did the math a little different...

I took my entire government deductions, totalled them up, and extended them out at the same rate I've gotten on my retirement over the last 5 years (about the worst period since I enrolled, btw). Using $500k as a retirement amount, I figured out how many years before one could retire on an average salary.

It came to 14 years to top half a mil in retirement. While, yes this isn't enough to retire on at age 32, it wasn't taking into account for raises in investment (due to income raises) either.

How many more jobs would there be if the population averaged retiring after 20 years instead of 40?
