Do You Know Your
Financial Independence Number?
If you want to be financially free, you need
an estimate of how much you will need to
accumulate — your personal Financial
Independence Number (FIN)! Knowing this
number is a critical first step.
To get there, invest $585 per month for 30 years at 9% = $1,080,000
You want to retire in 30
years, with $30,000 a year…
30 years from now, after
3% inflation… $73,000 spends
like $30,000 does today. Your FIN is $1,080,000
This hypothetical example assumes 20 years of retirement income needed, at a 6% post-retirement rate of return and 3% inflation. Hypothetical investment
rates assume a nominal 9% rate of return, compounded monthly, and is not indicative of any specific investment. Any actual investment may be subject to
taxes and fees, which would lower performance. This example shows a constant rate of return, unlike actual investments which may fluctuate in value.
How important is it to know your Financial Independence Number?

Do The Banks Want You To Know This?
The Rule of 72…
Sometimes called the Bankers Rule
Divide your interest rate into 72 to find the
approximate number of years it takes for money to double!
This table serves as a demonstration of how the Rule of 72 concept works from a mathematical standpoint. It is not intended to represent an investment. The chart uses
constant rates of return, unlike actual investments which will fluctuate in value. It does not include fees or taxes, which would lower performance. It is unlikely that an
investment would grow 10% or more on a consistent basis, given current market conditions.

Rates of return are constant and nominal rates, compounded monthly. Contributions are assumed to be made at the beginning of the month. The chart
above is not indicative of any particular investment or savings vehicle where rates of return fluctuate. It does not take into consideration taxes or other
applicable deductions, which would lower results.

(35-year Level Term, $25,000 on two children)
Monthly premium for cash value policies is an average of whole life policies from three major North American life insurance companies for male, age 35, standard
risk and female, age 33, standard risk. Cash value life insurance can be universal life, whole life or variable life, and may contain benefits in addition to a death
benefit, such as dividends, interest, or cash value available for a loan or upon surrender of the policy. Whole life usually has a level premium for the life of the
policy. Primerica monthly premium for age 35, non-tobacco use for 35-year Custom Advantage policy (C535) and spouse age 33, non-tobacco use for 35-year
Custom Advantage rider (C5SR), both with rates guaranteed for 20 years, plus a child rider of $25,000 each on two children, underwritten by Primerica Life
Insurance Company, Executive Offices: Duluth, GA. Term insurance provides a death benefit only and its premiums increase at certain ages. The accumulation
figure reflects continued investment at the same rate over 35 years at a 9% nominal rate of return compounded monthly and does not take into consideration
taxes or other factors, which would lower results. This example uses a constant rate of return, unlike actual investments which will fluctuate in value. This is
hypothetical and does not represent an actual investment.
