"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

Here is a page from the Bureau of Labor Statistics about Financial Advisors which are the people who would do retirement planning and advising.  http://www.bls.gov/oco/ocos302.htm  It says

Most personal financial advisors have a bachelor's degree.
Math, analytical, and interpersonal skills are important.

"what grade level math would cover enough"
algebra would be sufficient.
statistics would be helpful, as would calculus, but algebra (plus common sense ane reading books on retirement planning) would be enough
