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
