How to Figure Out What You'll Need to Comfortably Retire (feat. Len Penzo)

Whether you plan to spend your retirement sitting on the front porch or traveling the world, one thing's for sure: You're going to need money. In fact, you're going to need enough savings and/or income to keep you alive and well potentially for decades.

But exactly how much is that?

There's no one answer to this most critical of questions, because how much you'll need depends on a variety of factors, from where you live to the lifestyle you plan on living. But while there's no definite answer, there are ways to home in on the number you should shoot for based on your personal situation. In this week's "Money!" podcast, we're going to give you some tools to help you find your number.

As usual, my co-host will be financial journalist Miranda Marquit. And joining us this week is special guest Len Penzo of Len's an engineer who's mastered the math. Proof? He's about to retire at age 57.
