    how old are you, and how much do you have saved toward retirement?

    do you consider social security a part of your retirement income?

    Social Security is not added in with my retirement plans.
    If I get it, it's icing on the cake, so to speak.

    I am 54 and I do not count on SS being there when I retire. It would be nice if it was but I am not counting on it. I figure, after I retire, according to wonderful jewish accountant, with my pensions, mutuals, business residuals and natural gas royalties, coupled with the sale of my home, I should have around 2.25 - 3.0 million to get me through my twilight years, (assuming we don't go into depression or the people the GOP tends to protect gets at my money again, like they did a few years ago.) Truly, spread out over a period of 20 years or so, that really isn't a helluva lot of money to have on hand. But I'm a man of simple means. I plan to retire in a simple beach house near the Gulf of Mexico and as long as I can pay my utility bills and the other daily nickle and dime bills that come along day to day, and still afford fishing tackle and bait, I'll do just fine.

    No. One would think "no" would be sufficient but I guess not.

    To add, I started about 3 1/2 years ago, I'm 28 and have over $10k put back.
    About to move, my expenses are expected to go down, allowing me to put more towards my general savings/retirement fund.

    When I was 28, I had a guitar and a seabag full of clothes. I would say that, for a young man, you are well ahead of the game. Hang in there brother.

    damn, i'm sure you will! i do count on social security to be there....i'm 52. we have enough saved to buy another house (cash) and still have some left over when we are finished sailing. we will probably retire in another country. my husband has a pension and health benefits, which we will live on starting in a few months, for as long as we can sail and live on our boat. we have made a conscious decision to do it now rather than wait until we have "enough". we've seen too many people retire and then die, or their health go downhill.
