Professor, Doug Massey had created a simple formula based on Early Retirement. He was also retired early on his age of 41 and was not working for the others.

Early Retirement Formula (ERF):


ERF =  Your Age X  Networth / Yearly Expenses


From his explanation, we should know there are three things to consider for the early retirement. The Simple things that we need – Age, Net worth and the Yearly Expenses. He also said that one should maintain the ERF value is more than 1000.

Maintain the ERF value is > 1000

If your age is 30 and had an assets worth 2 Crores and your meeting annual expenses were 6 Lakhs then the ERF value for you,

( 30 X 2 Crores / 6 Lakhs ) = 1000

So, make your ERF value that is greater than 1000. Retire Early is a smart goal, but it’s a risky one. So, plan the goal wisely.
