Yep! Inflation adjusted. However $100 a month for your entire retirement is pretty small. Here's another look with a little more put into investing:

And again, this is doing it all yourself, in a Roth, no company match. Gets a lot easier if your company helps.

That makes a lot more sense. $100 real dollars per year. I agree that's way too little to be something to rely on, but it's a good start if it's all you can afford at the time.
