    To calculate how many years it might take to spend your guessed amount
    in retirement, we used your age, years until retirement, and inflation rate
    of 3%, and average spending data from the 2012 Expenditure Survey.

    Based on national spending averages,

    $1,500,000 will likely be spent by the age of 76.

    to save for retirement that could last 30 or 40 years is pretty hard.
