How much do I need in retirement

By Terry Savage on December 19, 2013 | Financial Planning / Retirement

I attended your talk at the Economic Club of Southwest Michigan in October and you gave several web sites. I have downloaded your Financial Organizer piece, but I remember that you recommended two other pieces–one on determining how much is needed for retirement and another for how long one may live. I am sharing these with my children and cannot find my notes from your talk. Thank you so much for helping me out..

The second is — the website of the Employee Benefit Research Institute, to help you determine how much you need to save to maintain your standard of living in retirement.   Both are permanently listed on the home page at
