Do you have a retirement fund? Find out how much you need to retire.

Many workers across the country wonder “Can I afford to retire?” It doesn’t have to be an idle question. There are several factors that can help you determine whether you have enough in savings to walk away from work:

  • Your age and life expectancy
  • Your health conditions and health insurance
  • Your savings and assets
  • Your debts
  • Your retirement plan
  • Your lifestyle and spending

Deciding when you can afford to stop working is an important consideration. It can be eye-opening to see whether you’re saving enough. You’ll also want to consider what could happen if you were injured and no longer able to work. How much more would you need to be independent of your need for income?

Money Help Center has a calculator to help you determine whether you can retire. This can be a good starting point to determine whether your retirement plans are on track or if you need to make adjustments in how you save and plan.
