The max...I want to leave as much behind as possible. I have a disabled child, and want to make sure he is well taken care of. Plus, for me the gift is in giving.

I said $500M or more. I have a while until I retire, and my situation is in flux, but being the conservative person I am, I'll plan to have lots left over at age 90, and then if it seems like I really will have a lot, I'll start spending more (extra travels etc). I don't have kids, but I have two nieces. I like the idea of helping with their college, but they'll be out before I retire, and my sister/brother-in-law don't really need my help anyway. So the nieces will split my leftovers with the various charities I support.

My current projections for age 90 are between $1.2M and $7.5M. If I die tomorrow, the answer is about $850K.

In 100-dollar bills, it still weights 22lbs and is a 4-foot high stack!
Oooooh Weeeee....more than enough for me to roll around in!

It's enough even in $100 bills, I think. Crisp new Benjamin bills.

Oops. OMG! That would give you terrible paper cuts, my dear!
