Retirement facts:

  • The average American retires at the age of 63
  • Average retirement lasts 18 years but can last longer. Higher life expectancies in the future may lead to longer retirements.
  • You'll need $1,060,751 in savings if you expect to draw $5,000 per month for 30 years, assuming 6% annual investment returns and 2% inflation. Depending on how much income you expect from your savings, adjust this amount higher or lower to come up with your retirement "number." Forbes Magazine April 2015
