Close, almost there! bu to my thinking it was more about talking about an hypothetical possibility in the future.
In other words, the guy is talking about a situation happening in the future of the retiree, not about his savings right now.
It´s the other way around, it´s that he has saved and in the future he has to worry (and be upset) for trifles wich would make their life miserable (oppressive).http://end.translatum.gr/wiki/nickel_and_dime

One of the main goals of retirement should be financial comfort—and you can't achieve that if you need to nickel-and-dime everything and are constantly in fear of running out of money after you retire.
Uma das metas da aposentadoria (ou ao se aposentar) deve ser o bem-estar financeiro - e você não consegue isso se você tem que se preocupar até com os pequenos gastos/até com os mínimos gastos e estiver em constantemente preocupado e receoso de faltar dinheiro após ter se aposentado.
At least it is my interpretation of it, and it seems like the item agree with me... http://www.fool.com/retirement/general/ ... retir.aspx
One widely used rule of thumb states that you should be able to comfortably withdraw 4% of your retirement savings each year, with cost-of-living adjustments in subsequent years, and your money should last as long as you do
. Well, using this "4% rule," the average 60-something could only manage $6,880 in annual income from their savings. Even when factoring in Social Security (which we'll get to in a second), it's not likely to be enough.
