In Australia, the ASFA retirement strategy suggests that couples can comfortably live on around $65,000 or a single person should be able to live more than comfortably on $60,000. 
Of course this is only a standard measurement and depending on your personal lifestyle and situation, could be more or less. It’s important to think about what “comfortable” means to you and what kind of lifestlye you wish to lead in retirement.

There’s no certain answer to this question and like most aspects of financial planning, it depends on your financial situation and the types of goals you have set.
