Many Americans realize the importance of saving for retirement, but knowing exactly how much they need to save is another issue altogether. With all the information available about retirement, it is sometimes difficult to decipher what is appropriate for your specific situation.
One rule of thumb is that retirees will need approximately 80 percent of their pre-retirement salaries to maintain their lifestyles in retirement. However, depending on your own situation and the type of retirement you hope to have, that number may be higher or lower.
Here are some factors to consider when determining a retirement savings goal.

ON OUR WAY TO WEALTHY: I recently had an opportunity to see "Lee Daniels' The Butler" and it was moving. One of the things that impacted me was observing how various moments in history could be seen and experienced from so many different perspectives.
I also realized that I did not have to go see Daniel's fine work to hear actual stories about the civil rights experience.
Influencers of the civil rights movement abound in Memphis. Among them is Tri-State Bank President Jesse H. Turner Jr., whose experience frequently gets overlooked by documenters of Memphis history. He was the first to integrate a high school in the city of Memphis, breaking the barrier at Christian Brothers High School (CBHS) in 1963.
