In Step 2, we calculated that we need $151,713 per year from our portfolio to be “financially independent.”
NIC NOTE: I define “financially independent” as the ability to no longer needing to earn income from a job. You might choose to work because you love it, but you no longer have to go to work to build your nest egg.
If we take our annual portfolio need ($151,713) and divide it by an annual distribution rate (.04 or 4% perfect), we get the answer of $3,792,833.
