Their analysis factored in an average retirement age of 61 and life expectancy of 76.15 years to calculate what retiring comfortably meant. Key takeaways:
- The cost of retirement is lowest in most Asian and African countries – like Pakistan, Egypt, and Algeria – where living a comfortable, retired life would require at least $225,000.
- Singapore is the only country where it would cost you upwards of a million dollars to retire, whereas, in the United States, that number is around $700,000.
- Among US states, the most expensive retirement destination, Hawaii, would require you to cough up nearly $900,000. The cost of retirement in 39 out of 50 states, however, was lower than the desired $700,000 mark.
