If you make $135,000 and you’re 31 or younger, you are richer than 99 percent of your peers, according to The Atlantic. But it’s hard to stay there, unless your boss is very generous with raises. A 30-year-old earning $130,000 in 2010 was in the top 1 percent, but people just a few years older were earning $80,000 more. And by age 45, one percenters were pulling in more than $325,000.
Check out The Atlantic’s graphs (for income and wage, only, not investment wealth) to see how much income you need to earn to land in the top 1 percent or .01 percent of your age group.
