This is an objective assessment

1. You own & live in a condo. This makes you among the top 20% of the population as 80% lives in public housing.
2. You own a car.
3. Your HH income is above the median HH income.
4. Your HH net worth is above the median HH net worth.

In conclusion, you are in the upper high class of society. Well done! Congratulations!

You can retire very comfortably.
