How Much Money Will I Have When I Retire?

Earning your wealth is only half the battle. The other half is how to plan for retirement—in other words, how to retire rich. When you retire, you lose job-based income, so you need to make sure you’re accruing savings while also building and managing your wealth. Many investors don’t start saving seriously until their forties or fifties, which is a little bit like a mountain climber taking an inventory of his or her equipment halfway up the mountain.

When you prepare early to retire, you’ll see huge returns on investments made decades ago. The next time you ask “How much money will I have when I retire?”, think about this: due to compound interest, a 25-year-old would only have to save $381 per month to save $1 million by retirement age. A 55-year-old would need to save about 15 times that amount to save the same amount of wealth. How long will my retirement savings last? A long time, if you start saving early to retire.
