The yearly figure needed for retirement comes from the Bureau of Labor Statistics 2018 Consumer Expenditure Survey. The expenditures considered were those of the age group "65 years or more," since this is the usual age range for retirement. To account for a comfortable retirement, we added an extra 20% on those expenses, and then adjusted by each state’s cost of living index as published by the MERIC. To obtain the total amount required for a comfortable retirement, we used IHME-based life expectancy figures published by National Geographic. Then, by subtracting the average retirement year published on MoneyTalks to the previous figure and multiplying it by the state-adjusted yearly expenditures, we obtained the total amount required for a comfortable retirement.
The IRA Rollover was born out of The Pension Protection Act of 2006 (PPA). It was important because it could help older taxpayers satisfy their required minimum distribution (RMD) requirements while obtaining their charitable giving goals. It permitted individuals to roll over up to $100,000 from an individual retirement account (IRA) directly to a qualifying charity without it being included in their gross income. The Act expired and was extended several times until it was made permanent in 2015.

According to the IRS, a donor-advised fund is defined as a fund or account that separately identified and operated by a section 501(c)(3) organization, which is termed a supporting organization. Once the account is established, the supporting ownership owns and has control over it. The donor, however, has non-binding advisory privileges with respect to the distribution or investment of the funds. Because of the charitable purpose of the DAF, there are other rules that must be adhered to:
Nepal and Sri Lanka have similar employees provident fund schemes. In Malaysia, The Employees Provident Fund (EPF) was established in 1951 upon the Employees Provident Fund Ordinance 1951. The EPF is intended to help employees from the private sector save a fraction of their salary in a lifetime banking scheme, to be used primarily as a retirement fund but also in the event that the employee is temporarily or no longer fit to work. As of March 31, 2014, the size of the EPF asset size stood at RM597 billion (US$184 billion), making it the fourth largest pension fund in Asia and seventh largest in the world.
