Many in the United States desire to retire but there is a common worry about how to succeed without a regular job and on social security. The average Social Security monthly benefit is around $1200 a month as March 2011. So a couple would have an average retirement income of $28,296 annually. There are some who have a household median income which is lower than the average benefit. The two-earner couple will need to be able to stretch out their payout to make it through each month.
