How Much Do You Need for a Comfortable Retirement?

Most people think they need to earn slightly more money than their current paychecks contain in order to feel comfortable, a new survey found.

Almost a quarter (24 percent) of adults say they need over $100,000 annually to achieve a comfortable lifestyle, according to a recent Gallup and USA Today poll of 1,032 adults. Another quarter (24 percent) of the workers surveyed say between $50,000 and $74,999 produces an adequate standard of living. However, less than a third (31 percent) of Americans think earning less than $50,000 annually produces an acceptable lifestyle. Here’s a look at how comfortable people feel in each of these annual income brackets.
