Brett Arends's ROI: These ‘Super Savers’ prioritize retirement — so they don’t have to think about retirement

It’s no secret that many Americans, maybe most, face a serious retirement crunch. 

They’ll need to make their money last longer than any previous generation, even if they keep their jobs until age 65, because so many can expect to live to their 80s, 90s or even longer.

Among all those who are fully retired, half may be living on less than $22,000 a year.
