The only thing I can think about when I see stories like this is how much you would need to save up in retirement to be able to afford to live to be 100+.

The trick is to save up and invest **before** retirement - yesterday is better than today is better than tomorrow. That way your money makes money and allows you to earn investment income while working on the 60-, 70-, 80- 90- or 100-year old distance record.

You totally lost me, then I realized that you interpreted my use of retirement as "the state of no longer working a job" and not as "a collection of investments designated for use after one ceases working".

Savings = [annual income - (social security + pensions + annuities)] / (0.04)

The tricky part is figuring out what you need to live on. Once you do that, subtract social security, etc., divide by 0.04 and that is the pile of money you need.

In theory you should be able to withdraw 4% per year, adjusted for inflation, indefinitely. Barring zombie apocalypses, etc.
