How Do You Define Retirement Success?

Do you know how much money you'll need to comfortably retire? If so, you're definitely in the minority: Only 1 in 10 people can make such a calculation, according to the Transamerica Center for Retirement Studies. On average, Americans are only on track to replace 60 percent or less of their income during retirement, while most financial advisors agree that retirees need to replace at least 80 percent.

Does retirement success come down to a magic number?

A recent study from Putnam suggests that definition of retirement success is the ability to replace your income in retirement. They also found another important key to retirement success: working with a financial advisor.

According to Putnam, investors who work with a financial advisor are on track to replace 80 percent of their income in retirement. Those who do not are only on track to replace 56 percent.
