How much money will you need to retire?

Learn the key factors you need to consider.

How much retirement savings do you need? To a large extent, the answer depends on three key factors:

  • Where you plan to live and the cost of living there;
  • How many years you’ll live in retirement
  • How much your health care expenses will be during your retirement years

According to the U.S. Census¹, the average life expectancy for U.S. women is roughly 80 years old, and for men around 75; but you may live a lot longer. And retirement years are when most people have their highest health care costs.
