Fidelity recommends the following age-based savings based on staying on the path to be able to retire from your job at 67. [1] Where recommendations weren’t given I made my own estimates based on their parameters and other research of average net worth and savings by age groups.

These savings estimates are based on your annual income at that age. So if you are making $50,000 a year at the age of 30 you should have already saved $50,000 into your retirement account. By age 35 you should then have $100,000 saved up. This is to stay on track for retirement.
