0Goal: $784,772 by March 2024
Current retirement balance: $541,036
November 2019 balance: $517,266
Progress since last update: $23,770
Still needed: $243,736
The new interim goal is based on getting my and NT's retirement to 4x our salaries (currently $75,120 and $64,118) by the time we turn 50 and AS's retirement values to 3x her annual income ($75,940 in 2018) by the time she turns 45.
$75,120 x 4 = $300,480
$64,118 x 4 = $256,472
$75,940 x 3 = $227,820
It will shift anytime our salary/annual income changes. (The only exception is I won't lower AS's if she has a lowerincome year, because her income fluctuates. So I'm keeping it at the 2018 level because her 2019 income was a little less.)
There are 51 months to go before March 2024, so that means we need to gain $4779 per month on average to meet our goal.
The ultimate goal we're working toward is 8x our annual income by the time we retire at 65. asdf123

0Assets:
NT's UK pensions:
AV: 22,397 pounds ($27,996)
SW: 29,047 pounds ($36,309)
FL: 6,462 pounds ($8,078)
NT's 401(k): $86,522
NT's Roth IRA: $43,321
AS's trad. IRA: $21,896
AS's Roth IRA: $64,340
AS's SEP IRA: $45,359
CJ's 401(k): $160,289
CJ's Roth IRA: $46,926
NT's flat: $212,500 (200,000 pounds value x1.25 15%)
CJ/NT/AS house: $427,281 ($454,554 value 6%)

TOTAL ASSETS: $1,180,817
Debts:
US Mortgage $374,193
Loan from friends (duplex) $9,000
UK Mortgage 1 $29,238
UK Mortgage 2 $6,164
UK Mortgage 3 $6,490

TOTAL DEBT $425,085
Current Estimated Net Worth: $755,732
November 2019 estimate: $730,941
Change in net worth: +$24,791
Summary: A really big month propelled us past the threequartermillion net worth mark! Part of it was AS's quarterly retirement contribution  she had a huge fourth quarter so I put in over $4K. I know volatility is still on the horizon but it's waited awhile, so I'll enjoy the gains while I can!
Notes on the numbers above: House value estimates are approximate. (I do have my eye on a comparable listing for the UK flat, but it's been on the market a long time.) UK pension values updated about once a year. UK asset values and debt amounts are calculated figuring $1.25 for every British pound. asdf123

0Shoot, I just realized I forgot to factor in NT's annual salary since he got a raise in October! That changes our retirement goalpost. I'll update next month. To remind myself, salary WAS $62,100 and is NOW $64,118. asdf123
