If you know how much money you need in the bank to comfortably retire, you're in the minority: Only one in 10 people makes such a calculation, according to the Transamerica Center for Retirement Studies. That might explain why, on average, Americans are on track to replace 60% or less of their income during retirement. Financial advisers generally agree that retirees need to replace 80% or more.

  2. Thank you, Pitter Jon, for your comments. I have read on a number of occasions that most Americans are not saving enough to replace 80% of their income, as you suggest they need. I have seen for myself that this means that some Baby Boomers are having to move in with their children or drastically reduce their standard of living. I hope that more people will start taking action now to protect their future income.
