And while there are many reasons people are choosing to delay retirement, money is often at the top of the list. In fact, a recent survey by Merrill Lynch found that 70 percent of retirees left the workforce earlier than they planned, with 43 percent citing financial.
How much money will you need to have saved by the time you retire?
There is no one definitive answer to this question. It depends on a variety of factors, including your lifestyle, age, and expected retirement date.
