What To Do When You Haven't Saved Enough For Retirement. How much is in your savings accounts? A simplified equation for determining how much you will be able to spend during your first year in retirement is Social Security benefit(s) + pension benefit(s) + 4% of retirement savings. Retirement savings in a Roth IRA or Roth 401(k) account will generally not be taxed if withdrawn past the age of 59½.)

Every year no money is withdrawn from retirement savings is an extra year those savings can benefit from compounded returns. For a person who has not saved enough, the potential tax savings must be weighed against the ability to save more for retirement.

Allocate money needed in three to seven years to a bucket with high-quality bonds and high-quality dividend-paying stocks. A smaller withdrawal rate is used during years with bad investment returns and a larger withdrawal rate is used during years with good investment returns.
