  1. Mine is 60


  2. My spouse and I are saving the maximum in TFSA’s $11,000 annually, $30,000 in RRSP’s and reinvesting the $12,000 annually from RRSP income tax refunds in non-registered accounts.

    All we do is buy long term provincial strip bonds and GIC’s. We are content with the current 3.50% combined annual interest rates. This will bring in our 4.5 million in 40 years. This is all done with have a $600,000 house paid off in 25 years and a savings rate of 32% of our $167,000 a year gross incomes.

    We don’t see future longer term strip bond yields going higher than 4.00% to 4.50%. Even these modest changes will bring in another $500,000 to $1,100,000 by retirement in 40 years.
