Declaration of Financial Independence


What does financial independence mean to you? If you're like most people it means a lot of different things. But, those things probably have something in common. They put you in control of your own life and give you choices as to how you'll live.

We asked 'what does financial independence mean to you?' and we received dozens of great responses. We've summarized them here.

Please take a look at the list and see if there aren't areas where you wish you had more control.

Financial Independence means:

  • Being comfortable with the things you have.
  • Pay your utility bills on time.
  • Not carrying a credit card balance.
  • Not being afraid of bill collectors.
  • Have six months of expenses in savings.
  • Being able to be unemployed for a short period without triggering a financial crisis.
  • Being able to buy a car without an auto loan.
  • Not having any personal or debt consolidation loans.
  • Not having any unpaid student loans.
  • Not having any 401k loans.
  • Freedom from financial fears.
  • Own my home without a mortgage.
  • Ability to give to needy friends/family or charitible organizations.
  • Income dependent on interest from savings, not from working.
  • Having sufficient retirement savings.
