You and your spouse are both 40 years old. You earn $55,000 and your spouse earns $35,000 per year. You estimate you can live comfortably on a minimum of 75% of your combined salaries in retirement, but hope to achieve more than that. You both plan to retire at age 62 and move to a warmer climate. You've changed jobs three times already in your career. With your first employer, you are vested in a defined-benefit plan with a fixed monthly payment of $315 if you begin taking benefits at age 62.

Your spouse has a 401(k) that is currently worth $10,500. You assume you will both live 20 years beyond retirement. Required: 1. Your current expectation is that together, you and your spouse, will require a minimum annual income of _________ in retirement (in today's dollars).
