|Two Month Amount by Age To Achieve|
Savings Equal To 12 Times Salary
|Salary||20||30||40||50||60*||12% of Salary|
One can choose the lower of the 12 Times Number or the 12% Number. For example, if 20 and making $50,000 per year, one should have saved $229 by August 31, 2007. If more aggressive, one can choose to have saved $1,000.
Since this is an honor system challenge, there is no need to report one's results. I hope everyone is make progress towards their retirement savings target. The next update will be around September 30, 2007. Good luck until then.
